An un-putdownable thriller for fans of Uglies
a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she
needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is
taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself
in a safe house for teens who aren’t like any she’s ever seen
before—teens who shouldn’t even exist. Using broken-down technology, her
new friends’ peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to
get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is
encoded in Dyl’s DNA.
A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in
2150—in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy
drugs, and guys with four arms—this is about the human genetic
“mistakes” that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can
turn out to be heroes.
Control will be released December 26 by Dial Books for Young Readers.
