The Declaration - Gemma Malley I loved the theme of this book, a perfect world where no one dies, but that means the world is quickly over populated. Meaning you end up with surpluses, childern born illegally who are forced to work to "repay" their sin of being alive.

Our main characters are Anne and Peter, Anne who has been at Grange Hall (where surpluses are raised and taught how to work)from the age of 2 and a half and is a "Perfect" surplus. Peter only shows up after the base story line has been layed down. Anne believes what she has been taught her whole live, that her parents are horrible, selfish and she is doing the only right thing by paying for her sins. Then she meets Peter who turns her way of thinking upside down.....


My problem is I figured out the main plot "twist" before it happened. But over all a good read, with an interesting plot.
