About Anomaly: Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds left to live. The toxic gas that will complete her annihilation is invading her bloodstream. But she is not afraid.
Decades before Thalli's birth, the world ended in a nuclear war. But life went on deep underground, thanks to a handful of scientists known as The Ten. Since then, they have genetically engineered humans to be free from emotions in the hopes that war won't threaten their lives again.
But Thalli was born with the ability to feel emotions and a sense of curiosity she can barely contain. She has survived so far thanks to her ability to hide those differences. But Thalli's secret is discovered when she is overwhelmed by the emotion in an ancient piece of music.
She is quickly scheduled for annihilation, but her childhood friend, Berk, convinces The Ten to postpone her death and study her instead. While in the scientists' Pod, Thalli and Berk form a dangerous alliance, one strictly forbidden by the constant surveillance in the pods.
As her life ticks away, she hears rumors of someone called the Designer---someone even more powerful than The Ten. What's more, the parts of her that have always been an anomaly could in fact be part of a much larger plan. And the parts of her that she has always guarded could be the answer she's been looking for all along.
Thalli must sort out what to believe and who she can trust, before her time runs out . . .

*"Dystopia" - an imaginary society in which social or technological trends have culminated in a greatly diminished quality of life or degradation of values.
Anomaly is a young adult novel which tells the story of a dystopian world. While the book was a little too "sci-fi" for my personal taste, McGee does an amazing job of weaving a story that involves your mind and emotions. The story is told strictly from the vantage point of a seventeen year old musician who struggles to make sense of what's going on around her. I loved McGee's character John and how she weaved the gospel into the story through his interactions with Thalli. While this isn't my favorite genre, McGee has succeeded in making me want to read the next novel coming in July 2014 Luminary. What will become of Thalli, John, Rhen, and Berk?
