Publisher Description

In a world where the slightest edge can mean the difference between success and failure, Leisha Camden is beautiful, extraordinarily intelligent ... and one of an ever-growing number of human beings who have been genetically modified to never require sleep.

Once considered interesting anomalies, now Leisha and the other "Sleepless" are outcasts -- victims of blind hatred, political repression, and shocking mob violence meant to drive them from human society ... and, ultimately, from Earth itself.

But Leisha Camden has chosen to remain behind in a world that envies and fears her "gift" -- a world marked for destruction in a devastating conspiracy of freedom ... and revenge.

A Classic Sci Fi Novel

Nancy Kress’ Bᴇɢɢᴇʀs ɪɴ Sᴘᴀɪɴ is a classic tale of social results of genetic modification. Writers have taken up the question of how we deal with the stranger and the strange for years— just think of a much earlier novel, Fʀᴀɴᴋᴇɴsᴛᴇɪɴ's Mᴏɴsᴛᴇʀ.

Recommended.

One of my favorite books

Loved this book when I read it. A great sci-fi novel that is very accessible to non sci-fi readers.

Not really a children's book

I don't really know why the plot just keeps going. It sometimes can bore me. What is up with this book ?
