When seventeen-year-old Lucas Marshall tests positive for the M0A1 gene—a genetic abnormality believed to predispose humans toward violence—he is shipped off to an impregnable government facility to undergo a battery of psychological tests aimed at making him crack. Now, having survived their tests and proven his mental stability, Lucas is labeled safe to return home.

But any hope Lucas has of returning to a normal life is shattered when the van transporting him to the reintegration facility is forced off the road by a group of radicals intent on accessing the facility and exposing its dehumanizing practices. And Lucas is their ticket through the front door.

Spurred by rumors that the facility is secretly holding one of his old friends captive, Lucas and his bunk mate, Chris, agree to infiltrate the testing facility’s inner sanctum. Once inside, Lucas’s carefully laid plans begin to unravel and he's forced to seek help from those still locked within the facility’s concrete walls. But when every genetic test claims your only allies are hardwired to become the next Charles Manson, it’s impossible to know who to trust.

My Review

You had me at:
Genetically Flawed,
Perfectly Human.

Isn't it crazy how just a few words can instantly draw you to a story that you know you are going to love?
Sometimes that is all it takes.

Hardwired will beautifully torture your imagination and take you for a ride in a world where trying to make the world safer causes more destruction than expected.

Science is tested with the discover of the MAOA-L gene that is believed to cause violent behavior. As teenagers are tested for the gene, and those who have it are sent away for psychological torture, no one can predict how those who are sent home will react....they are disgraced, shunned by peers, and mentally changed for the rest of their lives. The will power it takes to endure the tests is incredible.  I was completely drawn to this whole storyline. Anything dystopian related draws my soul in, and I just can't get enough.

The characters will pull you into the story. I loved the friendship Lucas and Chris developed over their stay. Without each other for support, who knows if they would have pulled through. I loved the bits of humor between them, which made them come more to life as teenage boys.

This is really a fast reading story. From the first sentence to the last, it is filled with drama, heartache, hope, frustration, excitement and suspense. For me, not one relaxing moment. Which is a good thing.

Action, twists and turns, with a solid conclusion, this story has it all. When I can disappear into a story, feel the elements, and have my heart racing at the high moments, that's one awesome read my friends.

Be ready to have your imagination HARDWIRED.
