“When a rejuvenative blood technology is developed that pits the young against the old, the government must take firm steps to address the war of supply-and-demand brewing across generational lines. Blood is not the only thing bought and sold in this dystopian tale of technology, economics, and independence. Vampires are now very real, but we never expected them to wear our grandmother’s best Sunday dress.”

Teenagers are in charge of…everything? The blood of the young has been discovered to heal and to reverse aging, and the kids are cashing in: leaving their parents, buying homes and cars, and eventually controlling the black market after blood sales are outlawed. Two families become intertwined as the government goes even further to create blood farms, where the children are kidnapped and held not for ransom, but for their very bodies and blood.

This book is...amazing. You HAVE to read it. Here's the deal: could this happen? WILL it happen? The technology is here already - what's next? Plausible scenarios abound in One Nation - you'll feel it, see it, and start thinking - if you haven't done so already.
