Read full description of the books:
Darci is thirteen and just starting to wonder about her world and what (if any) sense it makes. Living as a Genhaunt in the year 3038, Darci has suddenly been interested in the Originals, the group of people who cannot afford the 48th chromosome and are therefore considered below her rank. Because of a school field trip she starts thinking about her parents' embroykins--and why they picked her. She kind of drops the subject though when she gets an amazing opportunity to attend a superb rock climbing camp far away. When she gets there she realizes that climbing is more important than ever--but there's a surprise waiting for her there that brings everything she knows to a crashing halt.
What could have been an interesting book turned out to be a huge disappointment loaded down with too much scinece jargon and loses the reader completely. It was a bit of a struggle to get through and I found myslef having to constantly re-read paragraphs to get through. The jacket says that it is intended for 10-14 year olds, but I cannot envision many ten-year-olds understanding or enjoying this. It has an interesting premise, but Lasky got too caught up in the science and ruined what could have been a decent novel.
