Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of These Precious Scars by Emily Suvada, read by Skye Bennett.

Jun Bei, Cole, Anna, Leoben, Ziana. Five children with extraordinary potential. 

They don't get many visitors at the remote laboratory where they live under the eye of legendary geneticist Lachlan Agatta. The man and woman who arrive are nothing like the others. 

They're from Cartaxus and offer the children something rare and unfathomable: escape. 

But freedom means different things to the five children. For one of them, getting what they want may mean betraying everyone else.

very short - not worth the cost

This audiobook is very short - not worth the cost. it's a shame there wasn't more as the children's story would be very interesting to develop.
