Double Helix

Double Helix by Nancy Werlin (0-8037-2606-6)
Eli has landed a job with the famous scientist, Dr. Wyatt. The pay is really high and Dr. Wyatt seems personally interested in Eli. But things are not all rosy in Eli’s life. His mother is in the last stages of Hutchison’s disease and his father has withdrawn from Eli. Even odder, there seems to be some sort of connection between his parents and Dr. Wyatt.
This one is quite a ride, impossible to put down, but at the same time raises some very deep issues about identity and ethics. Kids into science fiction and those into reality fiction should love it. Also, boys will appreciate the well-written male protagonist. A wonderful mix of easy, pleasurable read and award-worthy writing and content.
