Publisher Description

“Redefines ‘unputdownable.’” —Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of Iluminae
“I was thrilled. I was shocked.” —NPR
“Stunning twists and turns.” —BCCB (starred review)

In this gripping debut novel, seventeen-year-old Cat must use her gene-hacking skills to decode her late father’s message concealing a vaccine to a horrifying plague.

Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.

That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.

Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

Love this book!

Someone please turn this book into a movie ASAP! I can’t wait to see this Story come to life! If you’re interested in a futuristic plague/apocalyptic story I highly recommend this book! The only thing I’m currently disappointed by is that this is the only book out by this author, I’m hoping for many more to come!
