This perfection is a scheme. Wealthy Enders (the elderly) laser away the flaws of teenagers and then rent their bodies to re-experience youth. Callie, an orphaned teen who survived the pandemic Spore War, needs money to protect her sick younger brother. Renting her body her body seems like the best answer. But escaping the wasted streets and entering the opulent world of the rich creates dangerous problems for Callie.
Starters‘ premise is engaging and my interest grew as politics, wealth and morality issues came up. The main plot is strong, even if the subplots waver, and its direct prose leads firmly to…the next book.
