He may look identical to the hundreds of other clone 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 learns the coding to escape 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, surrounded by artificially intelligent Nurses, the horror of the threat of an electric current pressed against his temples to erase his mind, he realizes just how dangerous being different can be.
