Gemma Malley’s debut won praise for its powerful message and vision of a frightening future that seems all too near. Longevity drugs have made it possible for people to live far beyond normal expectations, and children are now an unnecessary commodity. Anna is a surplus, one of the children whose parents were selfish enough to create her, and who now must suffer penance for their indulgence. But when a new surplus shows up at Anna’s compound, Anna is torn between everything she has been taught and everything she hoped might one day come true.
