"Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness engineered right into their DNA." - William Shakespeare, 1602 (adapted for BioPlus)
  
  Astrid Oxford is not normal. Two hundred years into the future, society is recovering from global collapse, and genetic modification has saved the remaining population from a hunger crisis. The alteration of human DNA has been illegal since the technology was developed, but in the heart of New London, a sinister trend has emerged among society's elite.
  
  Designer children have been the city's best-kept secret for years, but strange side effects are now appearing as they hit adolescence. When a freak suicide forces modification into the public eye, eighteen-year-old Astrid is about to learn how difficult it is to stay under the radar when you really were born to stand out.

Why do parents always lie like this? Even when they know we know, they're half reassuring their selves by lying. It's so annoying :(

i feel like one of the defining qualities of a good teacher is being able to laugh at yourself.

I’m sorry but all I though while reading your blurb was a book called ‘The Adoration of Jenna Fox’ I’m hoping this story is not the same bcs that brings on was confusing 😂
i love my light brown hair, that's naturally an ombre and looks orange and golden in places with light.
                              but i wish i had hazel green eyes like my father, and not weird honey brown hazel ones
I'm so hooked already! And this is extra impressive, considering that it's a change in genre for you. The world you have created seems real and I love it.
