I have a really amazing YA Fantasy/Science Fiction book to share with you today called Remake written by Ilima Todd.
Male or Female?
Nine is the ninth female born in her batch of ten females and ten males. By design, her life in Freedom Province is without complications or consequences. However, such freedom comes with a price. The Prime Maker is determined to keep that price a secret from the new batches of citizens that are born, nurtured, and raised androgynously.
But Nine isn’t like every other batcher. She harbors indecision and worries about her upcoming Remake Day—her seventeenth birthday, the age when batchers fly to the Remake facility and have the freedom to choose who and what they’ll be.
When Nine discovers the truth about life outside of Freedom Province, including the secret plan of the Prime Maker, she is pulled between two worlds and two lives. Her decisions will test her courage, her heart, and her beliefs. Who can she trust? Who does she love? And most importantly, who will she decide to be?
Wow, I have to say I never saw this one coming! Can you imagine that at age 18 you get to decide what you want to be? Up until then, you are all the same and then you can decide if you want to be a male or female and what you want your job to be!
It's really a mind blowing book but it has it's tender moments and Nine is so attached to Theron, she decides to do whatever pleases him because she doesn't want to be separated from him.
But, as we all know, things don't quite go the way the plan is suppose to work. For some odd reason, Nine is made different than all the other kids. She has a lot of freckles and that makes her an oddity. She learns she is an experiment but she doesn't even know the half of it.
When her shuttle crash lands into a new place, her eyes will be opened up big time and she will get all kinds of shocks she never imagined could happen. Go with her on her journey because it's well worth the read to see what's in store for Nine as she continues her journey.
