Eli Samuels, barely out of high school, is offered a job at prestigious Wyatt Transgenics by its founder, a legendary molecular biologist. The salary's amazing, the work is interesting, and Dr. Wyatt seems to want to mentor him. It's almost too good to be true. But Mr. Samuels is vehemently against Eli's taking the job, and he won't explain why. Eli knows that there's some connection between Dr. Wyatt and his parents—something painful for his father. Something to do with his mother, now debilitated by Huntington's disease. As Eli works at the lab and spends time with Dr. Wyatt, he begins to uncover some disconcerting information—about himself.

    This was great. I think it would be a good book for discussion. It raises a lot of questions about bioethics. Initially it reminded me of The House of the Scorpion, but completely diferent.Quotesp. 76 Eli talking about his mom I wished she were dead. I wished she were no longer suffering. I didn't know if I wished this for her sake, or my father's or my own.p248 [Eli talking about his future studies]It[CAG (Huntington's Disease DNA markers)]is one of the areas I am determined to study myself. That at least is in my control. So much is not.
