Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Alina's spent her seventeen years imprisoned for the crimes of her past self, as shown by soul-fingerprinting when she was a newborn, but when a group of people with questionable motives helps her escape, she discovers she may not be as innocent as she believes and must wonder if she's fated to repeat her past.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 February #1
    In a world where souls have been scientifically proven to reestablish themselves in newborns within hours of their previous owner's death, Alina Chase was born under a bad sign. Her soul previously belonged to the fugitive June Calahan, whose crimes have led Alina to spend her life isolated and imprisoned for fear that she will continue June's work. When one of her former guards breaks her out, Alina is on the run and determined to prove that she isn't just another June. Teens will thrill to the suspense that Miranda coils around a solid plot where corruption and blackmail slowly reveal themselves to be the driving factor behind "scientific" studies into the transfer of soul attributes. It's a unique spin on recent dystopian reads featuring genetic heritability, and it will fascinate teens already enthralled with questions about what they might do with their lives. A surprising new sf thriller with just enough of a touch of romance. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
