Description

When a crash kills their father and leaves the two girls orphaned, Zel knows she needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is taken by strangers, and Zel finds herself in a safe house for teens who aren't like any she's ever seen before. Using broken-down technology, her new friends' peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is encoded in Dyl's DNA.show more

Review quote

"Control blew me away. The twists and turns and suspense made for a thrilling ride. Zel is as authentic a character as I've read in a very long time. Highly recommended."--James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner Trilogy. "Control, with its mix of legitimate science and inventive fantasy, is unforgettable for all the right reasons."(VOYA) "Imaginative cultural details (an ecstasy-like drug carried by sound) and impressive specificity regarding genetics. The use of mutants alone is fairly unique, making this a smart go-to for fans of Megan Shepherd's The Madman's Daughter."(Booklist) "Control successfully integrates science, adventure, and romance into one unforgettable read. [It] will keep you wanting more until the jaw-dropping ending."(RT Book Reviews, Top Pick) "Steamy, romantic. . .scrupulous attention to scientific detail adds authenticity."(Kirkus Reviews) "A sweet, edgy romance rounds out this smart, futuristic medical thriller."(Publishers Weekly) ""Control "blew me away.
