    What if everything you thought you knew was a lie?

    Leanna Deberry lives in a world where Cyborgs and clones are real. They are compared to the slaves of the Confederate days. They have no rights and are there to serve the Firsts. Leanna's mom has always been an activist to gain them rights. Leanna never understood her mother's side of the argument. At least not until the day the biobots came for her mom.

    Leanna is forced to run and seek help from her mother's long-time friend and partner, Doc Doc. Doc Doc provides Leanna with the technology to answer her questions about the Liberty Bell secret society that Doc Doc and her mother have joined. It is Doc Doc who arranges for Leanna's journey to safety. It seems that Leanna's safety is the priority for the Liberty Bell. She is the evidence they need for their cause.

    With the surprising aid of a clone (who are programmed to never lie) and a Cyborg, Leanna must face truths that are the opposite of her beliefs. As her quest to safety intensifies, Leanna's journey has only begun.

    THE CLONE CODES is set in the not-too-distant future. Using comparisons to past historical events, the McKissacks' weave an intricate science fiction fantasy. THE CLONE CODES is the first part of a planned trilogy. Unfortunately, this is also one of those books where it's hard to give too much description of the story without giving away the surprise twists that are in store for the reader.

    THE CLONE CODES reads quickly and, with shorter chapters, younger readers will eagerly scoop this one up. I'm already looking forward to the sequel that will revolve around the Cyborg, Houston, that assists Leanna in her escape.

    Clone Codes by The McKissacks is about a girl named Leanna Deber

    Clone Codes by The McKissacks is about a girl named Leanna Deberry in the year 2170. She attends virtual school with the help of virtual reality type glasses in which she get to experience history as though she were really there. But as she learns about slavery and the Underground Railroad in school, she learns about another type of slavery in her real life that involves clones and cyborgs.

    This is a great story with excitement, suspense, and intrigue including flashes to the past and a fun look at the future. It definitely asks the question—is slavery really a thing of the past or is it still with us in other forms.

    Best Futuristic Book!

    This book is full of action, adventure, treason and racism. This book shows you the true meaning and value of being human, and being exiled from society. My best friend also recommends this book.
