Eighteen year old Noah Brody doesn’t like GAPs—Genetically Altered Persons. He’s taken up his dead father’s cause, speaking out and protesting against unfair GAP policies that are responsible for the massive social divide between wealthy GAPs and poorer naturals.
If only he could keep his mind off of perfect Zoe Vanderveen, daughter of the GAP family his mother works for.
And can he really fill his father’s shoes?
This was a prequel to the Perception trilogy, capturing the beginning of Noah and Zoe’s story from Noah’s point of view. I found the story enticing enough to pick up other titles by this author, especially the first book in this trilogy.
Noah and Zoe live in a dystopian society where you have the GAP’s (genetically altered persons) and Naturals. We learn that Noah’s father was a well known preacher with a strong following. The reader gets a glimpse into the lives of naturals versus GAP’s….and the disparity between the two.
Overall, this book was an easy read which made me want to (and I did) pick up the first book in the series. I recommend this title to dystopian fans who are looking for a quick read to wet their appetite for the series.
