Four hundred years in the future, Kee and Loy live in a technological, repressive society. Medical science has advanced to the point DNA scans can detect deviations from the norm, and undesirable mutations can either be cured or culled from the population. When one of the protagonists exhibits undesirable traits, the other one races to discover a way to save him.

 

A society where the powerful enjoy privileges while others struggle to get by may sound familiar. Mr. Owens' extrapolation of current conditions is not too far-fetched, prejudice has been around as long as humanity has. But so has the impetus to fight back against injustice. That's what the protagonists do, leading to a surprise ending.

 

Aside from the implied exhortation to never give up, the author also reminds us our current world, with whatever problems it may have, is not as bad as some of the alternatives. This is a well-written story you will enjoy reading. Cheering at the end is optional.
