Eternal Life is To Die For.

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along-side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.

Her brother Liam is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

My Thoughts:
I almost put this book down at 10% when I wasn't interested in the least bit. I got close to putting it down when I hit 20% and STILL wasn't sucked in. Then a little after that, the story picked up and it got less superficial. It started to get very interesting and I ended up finishing it fairly quick after that.

The way that the world of Sol City, holograms, and Genetically Altered Persons was revealed was poor at best. It was so unappealing for such a fascinating premise. Zoe's brother, Liam, goes missing and that's when it starts to get good. She wants to find out what happened because she suspects foul play. Zoe utilizes the family maid's son, Noah, to find out more information. Getting more into what led to her brother's death was full of action, mystery, and conspiracy. I loved it.

The ending wasn't the strongest - it seemed to happen too fast, but I definitely want to read the next book. Noah was so very likable!
