About This Book

Imagine a future without family. A new YA novel from a debut author.
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?

“An endearing character, endlessly questioning the existential choices she confronts.”-Publishers Weekly 

Male or female?My finger hesitates over the touch screen. How can I decide which to be for the rest of my life? It’s so . . . permanent.

My finger connects with the third option: Undecided.

“You know, Nine,” Theron says. “In three days, you won’t have that option anymore.”

“I know,” I say. “I’ll be ready.”
