This book was haunting and dark, and full of hope. Matt is a clone but can think for himself. Growing up with the drug lord, El patron, and his family was dangerous and deadly. The charming daughter of a U.S. senator, Maria is innocent and unknowing of the dark deeds she does. When Matt runs away, across the Mexican American border,he meets the horrors of this furturistic world.
Wow... this was a book that had me hooked! Hey, that rhymes. Anyway, this book takes place in the future, and it's amazing to imagine that hovercrafts could be dominating the air and that our fresh water supply has been so polluted that it can be compared to black slime. Matt, a clone of a dangerous drug lord, is in for a horrifying and eye-opening adventure, while you (the reader) are taken along for the ride. I'm not going to give too much away, because this is just one of those books you have to read yourself to enjoy it.
