The year is 2140. The battle against ageing has been won and people can now live for ever. But not everyone thinks that eternal life is a good thing and a resistance movement is fighting the drive for eternal youth.

Grade 7 Up—In this gripping, stand-alone sequel to The Declaration (Bloomsbury, 2007), teenagers Anna and Peter have escaped Grange Hall, a prisonlike dormitory for Surpluses—children living in the United Kingdom in 2140 where childbirth is illegal and longevity drugs allow people to live forever. Anna's parents were overjoyed to have her back but were forced to commit suicide ("a life for a life") in order to give Anna and her baby brother a chance to become Legals. Her boyfriend, Peter, accepts a job working at Pincent Pharma, the Longevity drug company owned by his wicked grandfather, in order to help the Underground (a resistance group) destroy it. His unexpected ally is his Legal teenage half brother Jude, a talented computer hacker. The author addresses the moral and ethical implications of immortality in this dystopian novel, making it a great choice for group discussions. The writing style is not particularly lyrical but the fast pace and exciting plot make it a page-turner that will appeal to graduates of Margaret Peterson Haddix's "Shadow Children" series (S & S).—Sharon Rawlins, New Jersey State Library, Trenton
