PositiveLibrary JournalWhile Ashley highlights several emotional and moving stories of patients, the title’s primary focus is on the scientific aspect of genetic medical treatment.

RaveSchool Library JournalWhile the novel\'s first half is full of careful world-building and character development, the second half veers sharply into action-packed thrills (and a bit of queer romance), and the dissonance in style is somewhat jarring.

Dark, surreal, and intense, this feminist-themed title will appeal to fans of science fiction, speculative fiction, and horror; recommended for all libraries serving teens.
