Population levels have reached critical, forcing the government to step in. A new system is built - an assigned mate for 16-year-olds, one child per family, all done with computer algorithm. Careers are determined for what job is needed and best suited for. Any deviation and they face the risk of becoming a Lower--the unwanted dregs of society. Or sometimes something far worse.
    
    Rebecca hates the system. She's paired with a cookie cutter human called Jake, sees her dream job given away to a liar, and is forced to work in endless code as a programmer. Nothing is what she would choose for herself.
    
    When she and a boy with many secrets, Scott, discover a flaw in the system, they realize they can change everything. Jake can be with his real love. Rebecca follow her dream of writing. Society can be turned on it's head with the sweep of a key stroke. If they're caught, they face a fate far worse than becoming a Lower.
