I enjoyed the growth of Zoe in a story where she stopped growing. Trying to rip her independence from the people that were not ready to give it to her. Every teenager has experienced the feeling of being an adult and being able to handle decisions and being held back from making them by the adults around them. Imagine being stuck in that in-between area of development forever, having to earn the respect of every single person you meet that you can take care of yourself and make decisions for yourself.
Then there is the medical and science fields that is having its hands tied by government. The government deciding what is important research and how they have conflicting interest with the truth and progress and how they can use their power to influence or retard the advancement of ideas in a direction they don't like. We are seeing this today in self driving cars, the government is trying to stop the cars before they even show what they can do. This book is interesting in both the places it takes you and where it can take your mind after you are done with the book. I enjoyed this book on many levels and so will you!
This book just couldn't grab me at all. Not even given it's synopsis. I was expecting something more from the get go and it just wasn't there for me.
