Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: This is about Everett’s search for the truth, and he eventually finds it, albeit at great cost..

Con: It’s hard to believe that a company would ever by allowed to genetically engineer children, much less that the product of that work would enjoy special treatment in schools.

Everett is an extremely unlikable character. There is no one to root for in this story.
