It's the year 2140 and Anna shouldn't be alive. Nor should any of the children she lives with at Grange Hall. The facility is full of kids like her, kids whose parents chose to recklessly abuse Mother Nature and have children despite a law forbidding them from doing so as long as they took longevity drugs. To pay back her parents' debt to Mother Nature, Anna will have to work for the rest of her life. But then Peter appears at the hall, and he tells a very different story about the world outside of the Grange. Peter begs Anna to escape Grange Hall, and to claim a life for herself outside its bleak walls. But even if they get out, they still have to make their way to London, to Anna's parents, and to an underground movement that's determined to bring back children and rid the world of longevity drugs.

Itīs an amazing book, and I was engaged and interested the entire time. I like the relationship between Anna and Peter when they first meet. The general story of the book is somewhat confusing but once you figure it out so many possibilities open up for other stories. The ending was a bit shocking and made me angry but Gemma Malley left room for the rest of the series, because of all that I am giving it a five.
