M. T. Anderson meets Cory Doctorow in this teen debut from #1 New York Times bestseller Sean Williams, who also coauthors the Troubletwisters series with Garth Nix.
When a coded note promises improvement—the chance to change your body any way you want, making it stronger, taller, more beautiful—Clair thinks it's too good to be true, but her best friend, Libby, falls into a deadly trap.
With the help of the school freak and a mysterious stranger, Clair races against the clock and around the world to save Libby, even as every step draws her deeper into a deadly world of cover-ups and conspiracies.
Action and danger fuel this near-future tale of technology, identity, and the lengths one girl will go to save her best friend.
“In the masterful hands of Williams, the technology, which has eerie parallels to contemporary life, provides a solid platform for great storytelling, and teens will revel in the drama, Clair’s tenacity, and the memorable characters who discover that their utopia isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.”
“The dangers, casualties and well-written action scenes keep tensions high. Williams marries accessibly explored moral ramifications of future technologies-a hallmark of mature science fiction-with a strong, capable teen heroine and heart-pounding action.”
“Compelling...handily juggles ethical debates, swift action, and a well-developed setting.”
“Williams spins a sprawling and complex tale, built on an impressively well-constructed premise and held together with intrigue and tension.”
“Give this one to teens who enjoy action-packed books such as Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” trilogy”
“TWINMAKER took my breath away. A triumph of thrilling action and vivid imagination.”
“A mind-blowing adventure about what it means to be human, and what it means to find ourselves.”
“A gripping YA thriller, coming of age and love story that transports the reader to a future that looks a whole lot better than it really is ... Highly Recommended.”
“TWINMAKER asks smart questions without easy answers, and presents a future so simultaneously wonderful and terrible you can only believe in it. A thrilling, existential head trip worthy of my favorite anime, I couldn’t stop reading this book. More importantly, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.”
“Twinmaker is a gripping scifi story of friendship, identity + accidentally destroying the universe.”
