To stay alive, an adopted girl must discover the secret of her birth
When her parents tell her that she is adopted, Eve is upset but not surprised. After all, she doesn’t look like her parents, and has always felt a strange distance from them. But as she approaches her fourteenth birthday, something begins to feel very wrong. While skiing, she sees a girl about her age die suddenly of a heart attack. A few days later, Eve learns that the girl’s sudden death is part of a pattern of fourteen-year-olds dying of strange causes, based on a chromosomal defect. One of the dead is Alexis, a girl who looks exactly like Eve.
Eve tracks down Alexis’s parents, hoping she has finally found her real family—but it turns out Alexis was adopted too. Something is killing fourteen-year-old children, and finding out where she comes from is the only way for Eve to save herself.
