As soon as the government passed legislation allowing humans to be genetically engineered and sold as pets, the rich and powerful rushed to own beautiful girls like Ella. Trained from birth to be graceful, demure, and above all, perfect, these "family companions" enter their masters' homes prepared to live a life of idle luxury. Ella is happy with her new role as playmate for a congressman's bubbly young daughter, but she doesn't expect Penn, the congressman's handsome and rebellious son. He's the only person who sees beyond the perfect exterior to the girl within. Falling for him goes against every rule she knows...and the freedom she finds with him is intoxicating.

Gr 7 Up-Ella is genetically engineered to be the perfect pet human. Purchased by the senator who made her pet status possible, she is excited to be the playmate for his daughter, Ruby. Ella develops a close relationship with Ruby and Ruby's brother, Penn, and discovers that the family mysteriously returned their last pet. Why did they return their last pet girl? Will the same thing happen to Ella? Will she be safe from the people fighting for human rights? Emily Durante masterfully uses different voices to draw listeners into Ella's world. Her transitions between internal and external dialogue are easy to follow and add depth to the story. -VERDICT This book is an ideal match for those who like The Selection by Kiera Cass (HarperTeen, 2012) and Matched by Ally Condie (Dutton, 2010).-Jessica Moody, Olympus Jr. High, Holladay, UT Â© Copyright 2015.
