Publisher's Summary

Are you who they say you are?

London, 2052. An ID tag is embedded in the flesh of your neck. Your every move is tracked. Your genes tell the State nearly everything about you. Everything you were. Everything you are. Everything you will be. For Freya, Kane and the rest of this fledgling generation, the battle to break free of their genetic horoscopes will not be without bloodshed....

Holly Cave was born in Devon, UK, in 1983. She has a BSc in biology and an MSc in science communication from Imperial College London. She spent four years working at the Science Museum in London. After a career break to travel the world, Holly became a freelance writer and now writes about science for nonexpert audiences alongside her fiction work.

She lives in rural Buckinghamshire in a wisteria-draped pub (yes, pub) with her husband and her dog, Cooper. The Generation is her debut novel (although she wrote a number of unpublished works with her father on his typewriter in the 1990s). The Generation has been shortlisted for the 2015 Mumsnet and Janklow & Nesbit novel award.

    "Interesting take on genetic futures"

    This kept me really engaged. I was really surprised at how quickly it flew by. Overall the performance was ok but idioms a few of the voiced characters a bit grating and sometimes sentences were weirdly chopped in half.
    My biggest query having come to the end is about the disregard by the author of the concept of medical ethics.
