“We are going to create something special,” he said. The doctor. Why can’t I see his face? His voice was distorted. Like it came through an old radio speaker.

Tears leaked down my face, steady rivers of saltwater. My clogged nose made it hard to breathe, so I panted.

“We’re ready for follicle extraction,” the technician said in a cold, clinical voice. Tied down on the bed, I could just make out part of a long needle. He lowered it below my field of vision. It went in with the probe. When it pierced my vaginal wall, even through the gag, I screamed.

About the Book:

Stasia is a woman unmoored.

Abandoned as a baby, she has little sense of who she is or where she belongs in the world. Seeking the answers, she jumps at a job opportunity in Washington. There, she meets Jack, a mysterious neighbor who is raising his younger sister and brother. Stasia is charmed by the family next door but finds their walls may be too high to climb.

Jack is fighting against the mysterious US government organization trying to bury him and his family. Born to an alien heritage, he works against a corrupt treaty to raise his sister and brother the best he can. When a human neighbor moves in next door, he feels his families secret, and freedom, are threatened.

Jack and Stasia soon learn their similarities may eclipse their differences. That they may be exactly what the other needs.
