Remake by Ilima Todd

Nine is the ninth female born in her batch of ten females and ten males. By design, her life in Freedom Province is without complications or consequences. However, such freedom comes with a price. The Prime Maker is determined to keep that price a secret from the new batches of citizens that are born, nurtured, and raised androgynously.

But Nine isn't like every other batcher. She harbors indecision
and worries about her upcoming Remake Day -- her seventeenth birthday, the age when batchers fly to the Remake facility and have the freedom to choose who and what they'll be.

When Nine discovers the truth about life outside of Freedom
Province, including the secret plan of the Prime Maker, she is
pulled between two worlds and two lives. Her decisions will test
her courage, her heart, and her beliefs. Who can she trust? Who does she love? And most importantly, who will she decide to be?
 





This book started out so well.  But shortly into it the story became full of older Christian values.  Woman are there to make man happy end of story.  Im sorry but in this day and age that thought process just don't hold water.  And I am kind of upset that the publisher published this book.  I wouldn't allow my child to read this.  I believe that woman should be able to go out and have their own dreams. And not just have to do what their husbands tell them to.  

I thought that the society where everyone is raised without read gender was kinda cool. But I was very disappointed with where the author decided to take it.  This book contains many bible passages which are used to basically kill anyone that is transgender etc.  And well I just can't support or finish a book that would do that.  This is def. one of those books that need a disclaimer on it.   

The characters in this one were also very gender driven. It has a love triangle with two repulsive males both wanting her attention. The plot itself felt very inconsistent  at times and with the bland characters and the focus of the book at pg. 107 when I just couldn't read anymore. 

 Go Into This One Knowing 
If Christian Fiction isn't your thing or if you are transgender etc this isn't something you are going to like.
