Fourteen-year-old Miranda has it all: beauty, brains, talent, perfect health. Until the day her vision goes blurry—the first symptom of a fatal disease. As she and her parents fight to save her, she makes the shocking discovery that everything she thought she knew about her life is a lie. Suddenly Miranda is facing some troubling questions: What makes us human? Is it our DNA, our upbringing or the choices we make? The answers will force Miranda to deal with the biggest challenges of her life.

"A suspense-filled mystery that starts off with exploring Miranda's middle school life, then morphs into a science fiction bombshell!"— Erika Lewis, TV producer/writer and author of Game Of Shadows, Tor Books

"A carefully crafted and suspenseful tale, as thought provoking, as it is engaging."— Perry Nodelman, children's book author and recipient of the 2015 International Brothers Grimm Award for research in children's literature
