Goodreads Synopsis

A girl discovers her geneticist father is covering up multiple secrets-all of which are named Jason.

Jason 3:3-known as Martyr-always believed his life had purpose. As one of the hundreds of clones living in a closed-off underground facility beneath an Alaskan farm, he has been told his genetics hold the key to saving humanity from an airborne pandemic above ground, and his purpose will be filled on his upcoming eighteenth birthday. The problem is no such pandemic exists.

Unaware of the truth, Martyr wishes for one glimpse of the sky before his expiration date arrives. His escape leads him to the home of one of the scientists, and to Abby Goyer. As she helps Martyr, she can't help but notice his uncanny resemblance to the high school quarterback. Abby soon uncovers the dark truth behind Jason Farms and her dad's work, and decides to show Martyr his true value and worth. As Martyr learns the truth behind his existence, he must decide if his God-given purpose is connected to the farm, or if it rests in a life with Abby.

I love the concept of this book. Not that I would love it if it actually happened, but in a story it is very intriguing. I am very curious to see what happens with Abby and Martyr. And I hope that he does escape and find love. That is my kind of story.

What are you waiting for??
