Sixteen-year-old Silver Melody lives in a world where 80% of the population has modified their DNA. Known as the altereds, those people now possess enhancements like wings, tails, and increased strength or intelligence.

With Silver’s mother in prison for treason, Silver’s father is the unadjusteds’ only hope at finding a cure.
