Reviews

a very believable future seen through the eyes of a believable white teen for whom discrimination on the basis of visual difference has suddenly become real. This nightmare study in manufactured prejudice will resonate with many teens . . . Timely, thrilling, and more than a little scary. --Kirkus Reviews McGoran extrapolates a believable, all-too-relevant future, but he wisely focuses on Jimi's transformation from someone aware of but untouched by discrimination into a willing activist with an emotional connection. McGoran doesn't skimp on the action, either, which is suspenseful and scary . . . This is a timely, thought-provoking start to a probable series. --Booklist Genetically modified teens forced to make life-and-death decisions in a modified world as a hideous new form of hatred poisons society. Spliced grabs you by the throat and won't let go. --Laurie Halse Anderson, internationally acclaimed New York Times bestselling author A mind-bending science fiction adventure into a disturbingly familiar, near future world. Characters you care about and a plot that will send chills up your spine, Spliced has it all! --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin and Mars One Intense and provocative, Spliced questions whether humanity is defined by our genetic make-up or our compassion. The haunting themes McGoran has created will resonate long after the final page is turned. --Joelle Charbonneau, New York Times bestselling author of The Testing and Dividing Eden
