What if your mom was abducted?
What if the people who held her hostage wanted to erase her mind?
Seventeen year old XJ Patterson is genetically enhanced. So is her revolutionary mother, Dorothy. CAGE, the Coalition to Assimilate Genetically Enhanced Persons, abducts Dorothy because she crossed the wrong person. XJ wants to rescue her mother, but she won't join the revolution to do it. If she becomes a revolutionary, she can't live a normal life. And all she wants is to be normal.
Brandon Miller wants XJ to be his girlfriend. He doesn't care that she's poor and he's rich. He doesn't care that she's black and he's white. But right now, his priority is convincing her to tell her story on Revolution TV.
Can he convince XJ in time to help her rescue Dorothy from the CAGE mind sweep?
Breaking Free is the first book in the Genetic Revolution series. Three young cousins, XJ, Amber, and Whitney, must reunite to become the ultimate weapon to destroy CAGE.
