In this sequel to The Ones, a seventeen-year-old girl fights for the survival of genetically engineered teenagers after society deems them dangerous.
After the fallout in book one, The Ones — the one percent of the population who were genetically engineered in vitro — are rounded up and subjected to a vaccine that will reduce their brain function just enough to level the playing field.
Cody, heartbroken over a recent discovery, grows closer to a radical group of Ones who’ve fled to a compound in the woods. But once she’s welcomed into the trusted inner circle of rebels, she slowly uncovers clues that point to the existence of a mysterious genetic program — and a conspiracy that runs deeper than she could’ve imagined. Torn between loyalty to her first love and the exciting rebel who shares her cause, Cody will have to choose how to forge a new world.
With breakneck action and high stakes, The Equals is a page-turner until its dramatic conclusion.
