Lucy Morrigan, a young genetic researcher, decides to clone her grandmother in this modern, heartwarming twist on Mary Shelley's classic. Lucy lives with her boyfriend, Gray, in her crumbling family mansion and works in the high-tech basement lab she inherited from her father. Frustrated by her unsuccessful attempts to win tenure and bear a child, she takes drastic measures to achieve both. Hoping for a baby, she instead brings to life 22-year-old Mary.

I really enjoyed the premise of the book. It was an interesting take on an old concept. I felt like there was a lot of story development and the wrap up was murky. It was not stellar but definitely an enjoyable story.
