An enthralling debut YA stand-alone thriller where DNA proves deadly.

Genetically engineered identical twins Kyle and Connor McAdams were born two years apart. Their parents figured it was safer that way, to increase their odds of survival. Connor was born first, paving an impossibly perfect path for Kyle to follow. He was the best at everything, from claiming the title of valedictorian to star athlete.

Kyle doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to live up to Connor’s example, and so he doesn’t even try.

When Connor suddenly dies from a heart attack, Kyle learns of other genetically modified kids who’ve also started to die on their eighteenth birthdays and he’s suddenly motivated—to save his own life.

When her parents told Debar Dockter she could be anything she wanted when she grew up, she took it to heart. Even being a Kansas girl, she managed to become a ballerina (performing Swan Lake 28 times), worked as a magician's assistant (worst job ever!), became a child psychologist, and currently works as a college professor and a young adult author. She lives in Kansas with her husband, three children, one dog, one bird, nine fish and if her youngest gets her way, some sort of rodent.
