"Failure is not an option at the Stansbury School. It's the year 2036, and prestigious Stansbury trains carefully screened, pharmaceutically enhanced specimens (as the students are called) to take their places as top leaders and thinkers in education, business, and government. But a few problems have developed. A Senate investigation is underway, finals and graduation are drawing near, and some of Stansbury's less successful graduates are being murdered. Narrator Paul Michael Garcia is at his best giving gravity and emotion to the voices of the valedictorian, the punk, the misfit, and the brainy beauty, who band together to solve the murders. Kalstein weaves biting dystopian discourse with teen romance to create likable characters and a surprising, moving epilogue. B.P. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
