Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 

This is sort of a totalitarian government genre book. In fact the main character Jaiden makes several references to books such as 1984 and Feed. The story is a first person narrative of Jaiden, the first child to be adopted by a company. He has conflicts with his parent company when they begin to interfere with his personal life. Jaiden is torn when he starts to suspect that his corporation could be evil, when the father of a girl he likes informs him that his parent company has been dumping mercury in the city's drinking water, and deliberately covering it up. Throughout the story, Jaiden is torn between thinking of his company as a parent, or just a corporation who thinks of him as a product.

Similar authors or titles?: 

Jaiden (the main character) cites "Feed", "1984" and "Brave New World" as books that are similar to his life.

Would you recommend this book?: 

I would recommend this book to even younger readers, it's a quick, easy (no new vocabulary, no complicated language) read, not difficult to understand, and thought-provoking.
