Remake, 1 (Hardcover)
In this dystopian novel, children are raised completely androgynously until their seventeenth birthday at which time they can choose their hair color, eye color, their life's work...and their gender. A fascinating twist on dystopian novels and thought-provoking perspective on how gender roles determine so much of destiny in life. Book 1 of a trilogy.

However, such freedom comes with a price and the Prime Maker is determined to keep that price a secret. But Nine isn't like every other batcher: Nine's indecision and worry about the upcoming Remake Day lead to discoveries and questions about who is really in control.
