Juliet Huff’s life depends on it.
She’s never been outside, had friends over, or attended school. She’s also never had a cold, a bruise, or a scrape.
Her parents are researchers, part of the secretive Genesis Foundation, and they have one goal. Utopia. No one will ever lose another child to disease or birth defects. They’ll achieve their goal through cloning perfect children. In order to attract funding, any imperfect subjects are terminated.
As she nears her eighteenth birthday, she discovers she will become the first Genesis child to reach this milestone and will be “preserved” as a permanent record of their work unless she can break free.
But Juliet has a secret. She met someone from the outside world once, the boy from across the street. Breaking free of her house, she finds help from Bill Manning and his friends, but time is running out and she must expose the Genesis Foundation…
Because she’ll never be perfect again.
-Summary from Goodreads
Overall I enjoyed reading this book. The story was a fun, fast-paced sci-fi thriller. The story was suspenseful, and horrifying. Cloning, experiments, murder and conspiracy definitely keep the plot interesting and it’s easy to fly through this book. It does escalate quite quickly and may be a bit unbelievable at times, but overall the story was fun.
Perfect kind of read like a Young Adult novel to me, although I guess you would call it New Adult since the main characters were 18-19. But for the most part it felt like I was reading a YA novel. I didn’t really care for the romance, it felt very rushed and unbelievable to me, with a lack of chemistry. I also felt like parts of the story were a bit rushed. I also think the characters could have used a little more depth.
It may not be a perfect novel (pun intended hehe), but it was definitely a fun, fast-paced ride!
