Blaine Colton had been handed a genetic death sentence until revolutionary gene therapy changed his life. But, just weeks before his eighteenth birthday, his original doctor is gone, replaced by another, and Blaine is told that his treatment was never approved. This leaves Blaine trapped in a facility with people who he increasingly doesn’t trust. Unable to contact his family, denied his life-saving medication and being told he may be a danger to anyone who comes near him. Blaine is forced to find his original doctor and save his own life before time runs out. A captivating read, the medical and scientific terminology is just enough to make it authentic, but not enough to confuse the reader. A great conversation starter in classrooms about genetic research and the societal implications it brings with them.
