A beautiful world comes at a price... In the near future, genetics have advanced to the point where parents can design their ideal child. Perfect clones are the norm, and those born through natural conception are treated as their inferiors, living in poverty and servitude. Fifteen-year-old Mina Hart has flawed genes. She's part of the Blemished, forced to live in the slums, and taught only how to serve the GEMs, those who have been genetically engineered. When Mina is sixteen she'll be coerced into suffering the Operation, a procedure that leaves girls infertile, and in most cases, insane. But Mina doesn't want to have the Operation, and she's willing to do everything she can to stop it happening. Because Mina has a secret power, and she's about to start using it. Book one in the Blemished trilogy, an adventure dystopian series set in a fractured world. If all your choices had been taken away, would you fight to get them back?
