If you could be anywhere in a moment, where would you go? If you could change your appearance in a minute, what would you choose? If you discovered something was very wrong with this perfect world, what would you do? Action and danger fuel this near-future thriller in a fresh take on technology, identity, and the lengths one girl will go to save her best friend.

'A thrilling, existential head-trip' - Alaya Dawn Johnson

Clair lives in a world revolutionised by d-mat, a global teleport system that allows people to transport themselves instantaneously around the world. When a coded note promises improvement - the chance to change your body any way you want, making it stronger, taller, more beautiful - Clair thinks it's too good to be true, but her best friend, Libby, is determined to give it a try.

What starts as Libby's dream turns into Clair's nightmare when Libby falls foul of a deadly trap. With the help of Jesse, the school freak, and a mysterious online friend called Q, Clair's attempt to protect Libby leads her to an unimagined world of conspiracies and cover-ups. Soon her own life is at risk, and Clair is chased across the world in a desperate race against time.

About the Author

Sean Williams was born in the dry, flat lands of South Australia, where he still lives with his wife and family. He has been called many things in his time, including 'the premier Australian speculative fiction writer of the age' (Aurealis), the 'Emperor of Sci-Fi' (Adelaide Advertiser), and the 'King of Chameleons' (Australian Book Review) for the diversity of his output. That award-winning output includes thirty-five novels for readers all ages, seventy-five short stories across numerous genres, the odd published poem, and even a sci-fi musical. He is a multiple recipient of the Aurealis and Ditmar Awards in multiple categories and has been nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award, the Seiun Award, and the William Atheling Jr. Award for criticism. He received the 'SA Great' Literature Award in 2000 and the Peter McNamara Award for contributions to Australian speculative fiction in 2008.

WRITE A REVIEW

Interesting take on a dystopian future

4

I disagree with the other review left here. I picked this up at my local bookstore and I was captivated until the end. I am looking forward to getting my hands on the other two books in the series to see where it all goes! If you like a book with a compelling conspiracy theme and a realistic, futuristic setting then I would recommend you give this a go.

A disappointment

This book was to have been a gift for a 13 yo girl. I thought it was an awful book. It was a mess plot-wise and sloppy in the writing and characterisation, especially of females. Very disappointing effort at the SF genre. I didn't finish reading it and bought something else.
