For fans of THE HUNGER GAMES, DIVERGENT, and THE MAZE RUNNER.

Seventeen-year-old Ada always knew her life was destined to suck. 
Being born with a rare, unknown disease that makes her frail and sickly has ostracized her  from the rest of her agricultural village, and although high school graduation promises a new start  in one of the satellite villages, she's confident that she's going to die alone. Especially since her twin and his best friend, Zeran - the only one who's ever treated her like a person - are too exceptionally smart and strong for their own good. And with folklore about a secret gilded society where "the chosen ones"  go circulating the air her crap lungs can't breathe, she's even more confident she'll never see Zeran again. 

But then graduation comes. And  everything she thought she knew of herself and the system is challenged. Turns out that secret place is real. 

And she might have the key to get there - her "defective" DNA.

Hello, as a suggestion, maybe you could stop saying the word farm so much. My family owns a small herd of cattle and people in small towns describe it differently.
