In the year 2140, it is illegal to be young. Children are all but extinct. The world is a better place. Longevity drugs are a fountain of youth. Sign the Declaration, agree not to have children and you too can live forever. Refuse, and you will live as an outcast. For the children born outside the law, it only gets worse – Surplus status. Not everyone thinks Longevity is a good thing, but you better be clear what side you’re on. . . . Surplus Anna is about to find out what happens when you can’t decide if you should cheat the law or cheat death.

I have only seen once person that I follow talk about this book but I never did hear her actual thoughts on the book when it was finished. I think that is partially keeping me from reading it. I picked it up on a whim from HPB one day because it was on the clearance self and in good condition. The premises of the book sounds good and this is one of the ton that I hope to actually read next year.

 Have you read this book? What are your thoughts?
