Does your future lie in your genes or your choice?
The year is 2077 and it’s now the Genome Age, where humans, plants and animals have been genetically modified to create a new world. All genetic advances are tightly controlled by a powerful government department, Genetico.
Enter the brilliant fifteen-year-old Natalia with genetic predispositions for both science and music. Suddenly, her future career and romance are at stake when she discovers her beloved late father is actually a Miscreation (the result of a botched genetic experiment)… and he’s not dead. Natalia’s cold and manipulative mother has secretly kept him in cryogenic freeze while trying to develop an illegal gene therapy to save him. Now she’s asking Natalia to break the law to bring him back.
Meanwhile, a group of rebel Miscreations called the Progeny start pressuring Natalia to steal this gene therapy for their own purposes.
Natalia is torn between participating in an illegal gene procedure, helping the Progeny and bringing back the father she loves. And just what do you do with the Miscreations… when they have powers you don’t understand?
Miscreation? is a young adult science fiction novel. It explores a genetically engineered world where technology creates as many problems as it solves and cannot deal with the pain and prejudice in the human heart.
