A startlingly unique and powerfully affecting novel from a remarkable up-and-coming voice in speculative fiction. It is the story of a lost generation and a boy who just wants to be one of us.

A generation of children born with extreme genetic mutations

But it's a place of neglect and forced labour

But Dog is just a boy who wants to be treated as normal

They might be right

The story of a lost generation, and a boy who just wants to be one of us.
