Descripción

Alexa Denisovitch, a refugee from Kosovo during the 1999 war, is just seventeen when she is accepted by GenGineer Laboratories as a Tester for Longeva, a revolutionary additive that may significantly extend her longevity.

But becoming a Tester has unintended consequences and Longeva causes devastating unforeseen side effects.

Confronting environmental, political, and personal perils of the future, Alexa must grapple with the tough questions of life, love, and death.

“Incorporates lively prose, past/present time jumps, and the consequences of longevity technology....An absorbing read with an appealing narrator and subtly powerful emotional rhythms.”
—Goodreads
