Legally, a corporation is a person, so why shouldn’t they be able to adopt a child?
Fourteen year old Jaiden’s family is a corporation and his home is an office building. When his parents are killed in an accident caused by a faulty piece of equipment manufactured by NECorp, the company adopts him and raises him in its headquarters. Now as a teenager, Jaiden, is longing for a normal life—attending high school, living in a house, having a girlfriend—and is starting to rebel in search of it.
With the help of his new friend, Jenny, he uncovers some disturbing and scandalous information about NECorp and must make the tough decision to stay loyal to his “family” or to follow his instincts.
Jaiden’s funny and fresh voice makes this a quick, enjoyable read and the suspenseful plot will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
