Au­thor: Louise O’Neill Pub­lisher: Quer­cus Six­teen- year- old Freida has a test­ing time of it in this Young Adult book, which is set in a fu­ture where ge­netic en­gi­neer­ing has helped en­sure that only male ba­bies are born; fe­males are de­signed in lab­o­ra­to­ries and schooled to be the per­fect will­ing, sub­servient com­ple­ment to men. We said: “Com­pelling writ­ing and a bru­tal con­clu­sion mean this only- too- real dystopia grips from be­gin­ning to end.”
