Reese and David are not normal teens-not since they were adapted with alien DNA by the Imria, an extraterrestrial race that has been secretly visiting Earth for decades. Now everyone is trying to get to them: the government, the Imria, and a mysterious corporation that would do anything for the upper hand against the aliens.Beyond the web of conspiracies, Reese can’t reconcile her love for David with her feelings for her ex-girlfriend, Amber, an Imrian. But Reese’s choice between two worlds will play a critical role in determining the future of humanity, the Imria’s place in it, and the inheritance she and David will bring to the universe.In this gripping sequel to Adaptation, Malinda Lo brings a thoughtful exploration of adolescence, sexuality, and “the other” to a science-fiction thriller that is impossible to put down.

"Dialogue rings true, and the characters are appealing...the alien and political machinations provide menace, a brisk page-turning plot and lots of fun."—Kirkus Reviews
"Readers may find Reese...just as memorable as the clever plot and strong world-building that are the strengths of this novel."—The Horn Book
"Lo's layers of conspiracy that were so effective in Adaptation continue to surface here, and the development and revelations of what's lurking under the surface of this alien encounter will continue to set readers on edge."—The Bulletin
