He may look identical to the hundreds of other Boys that surround him, but there is something different about Boy 1124562. When he closes his eyes in the quiet of his sensor-filled cube his mind doesn't go blank like the rest of his brothers. Instead, 1124562 dreams.
With the help of a rogue teacher, 1124562 discovers that there is more to Adaline than brushed steel and robotic Nurses. When a Boy suddenly escapes the secure pod, it seems that all of Adaline is on a hunt for anyone with an anomaly. When 1124562 finds himself strapped to a table, the threat of an electric current pressed against his temples to erase his mind, he realizes just how dangerous being different can be.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
This book was brilliantly crafted! It was intense like The Giver, but longer and a little more complex! I have a feeling that everyone is going to adore this book.
This book is about 1124562. He is identical to the rest of his brothers, but he has emotions, dreams and tons of knowledge. When 62 starts having anger, his teacher, 71, starts tutoring him in a secret way. However, things start getting hectic when 00 tries to escape. Everything seemed a little more tense, but 62's teacher, 71, will help 62 get better before he dies too.
My favorite character is 99 because he is loyal and a great brother. My favorite part is when 62 says he will never stop dreaming.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
