Matt Alacrán was not born. He was harvested.

His DNA came from El Patrón, who is the drug-lord ruler of the country of Opium. Most people hate and fear clones like Matt—except for El Patrón. El Patrón loves Matt as he loves himself, because Matt is himself.

As Matt grows up and struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by a sinister cast of characters, and has to make bigger decisions than he ever imagined. Through Matt’s page-turning adventures, Nancy Farmer tackles some of life’s most enduring questions—what it means to be human, what we owe to each other, and how to find hope in even the darkest situations.
