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.

    " I'm reviewing this and 2 others to decide what to read next. If I just go by the back cover, I have to wonder if it's Dublin material.

    Sorry, this is not for me. I read some reviews of it and I will not be putting it on my list to read later. "

    " I believed every minute of this book. The narrator is likable in a flawed, human way. It's unselfconciously clever and I love the way she breaks up the narrative. People I like would like this "
