One of Us

(2018)
A novel by

 
 
A startlingly remarkable novel set in 1984 where a group of teenagers begin to discover powerful secrets about themselves, and learn that the only way to create their own future is to break away from previous generations.

They call it the plague.

A generation of children born with extreme genetic mutations.

They call it a home.

But it's a place of neglect and forced labor.

They call him a freak.

But Dog is just a boy who wants to be treated as normal.

They call them dangerous.

They might be right.

Genre: Horror
