Publishers Weekly praises this debut novel by Texan poet Jillian Weise as “ambitious, provocative, and wildly inventive.” It’s 2015, and Anne Hatley is leaving her North Carolina home for a Long Island research lab called the Colony. Anne, who was born with a genetic mutation that left her only one leg, will be donating stem cells for gene research in exchange for a new leg. But after meeting others with deficiencies, including carriers of the “suicide gene” and “obesity gene,” Anne questions how much genetics really determine a person’s life.
