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.

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.

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?
