The year is 2173. Humans are a near-extinct group herded together in protected sectors. Mira, a regular, self-absorbed, 16-year-old pimple buster, resident of Sector 51, has no clue how drastically her life is about to change when she accompanies her mother on a research project to a distant tropical jungle. There, Mira discovers a tall, super-intelligent and rather good-looking boy called Neel, who introduces her to a whole new world of mysterious possibilities. But before she can even begin to understand her feelings for him, things take a nightmarish turn . . . Carnivorous mutants are on the prowl. A deadly new breed of the forest, they have Mira trapped. Rescued by unlikely saviours, she finally learns the ugly truth of her world. Now, Mira must fight not only for her own life but also for humanity itself as she is pitted against a far stronger, smarter and more evolved enemy. Her only hope lies in Neel. But will he be able to overcome the overwhelming odds against them? Will this be the end of the human race? With electrifying action and forbidden love, Infinitude is the riveting story of two young lives caught in a deadly clash of civilizations.

About the Author
Ruchi Banerjee was born in 1978 and still continues to thrive. Ever since she first met Francine (the protagonist of her favourite novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn), Ruchi fell in love with the written word. At present, Ruchi lives in Brazil, speaks decent, if not quite fluent, Portuguese and really hates talking about herself in third person. This is her first novel.

I was surprised as the book started because the first scene was a bit stronger than you left wondering what has happened. And from there I could not put it down, the story about the future and humans almost extinct. Our protagonist is a 16 year old young woman left her sector to go live on an island with her mother and everything she knew about her world changes. I liked as the protagonist Mira, I found a strong character despite the difficulties she encounters and love her witty. How is attracted to Neel but he is different and is about to discover how different it is. Actually the story attracted me a lot and I really liked the way the author describes things, now the end was unexpected and I hope there is a second book because the author cannot have me hanging there. If you like science fiction literature, you will like this book and it has really been fun and I really did not expect the events develop.
