Scientist are working on something that will eliminate hunger in the world. Humans will be able to subsist without food or water. The Gardener has found a way to "grow" people.
Mason, the main character, is a pretty typical sophomore in high school until he falls in love with a beautiful girl he knows nothing about. He only knows he must keep her safe from the people who will do just about anything to get her back - including his own mother.
But keeping her safe is much more difficult than Mason first thinks - she appears to be dying and Mason may have no choice but to bring her back to the Gardener.
This is a fast-paced book that will keep the reader guessing. Fans of The Compound will also enjoy Bodeen's latest dystopian novel.
