Summary from Goodreads:

In the future there is no disease. There is no war. There is no discontent. All citizens are complacent members of the Global Governance. But one summer is about to change everything.

Keeva Tee just turned fifteen. All of her dreams are about to come true. She s about to make the trip to Monarch Camp to be imprinted with her intended life partner. One day they ll have perfect kids and a perfect life. But in her happy, carefree life in the Ocean Community, something weighs on her mind. She hears whispers about anomalies citizens who can t be imprinted. No one knows what happens to them, but they never seem to come back.


When Keeva arrives at Monarch Camp, her worst nightmare becomes a reality she is an anomaly. After imprinting, the people she loves change, and she starts to doubt everything she s ever believed. What if freedom and individuality have been sacrificed for security? And what if the man who solves all the problems is the very man who s created them and what if he isn’t a man at all?


When Keeva finds a warning carved under a bunk bed she begins to understand: nonconformity will be punished, dissent is not an option, insurgents will be destroyed.

Anomalies Playlist

We write to music, so each of our characters had his/her own sound track. As we built characters, we gave them each a playlist and a genre of music they preferred. This helped us with building their motivations, flaws and overall arcs. It’s a trick which was passed down to us and we recommend it. A lot of actors do this when they get a complex role…they will create a soundtrack specifically for that character. Here are our character playlists

 

Keeva: Strong Femme: (we couldnt confine her to one genre) Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Lorde, Liz Phair, The Breeders, The Distillers, L7, Bishop, Pink, M.I.A. Amy Winehouse, Madonna, Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin

 

Kai: Hip Hop: Drake,  Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Eminem, T.I., Notorious B.I.G.

 

Calix: Early Punk: The Ramones, New York Dolls, Sonic Youth, The Clash, The Velvet Underground

 

Sobek: Pagan Metal: Ensiferum, Graveland, Eluveitie, Obtest, Primordial, Skyclad, Enslaved, Amorphis

 

Taj: Jazz: Count Basie, Charlie Parker, Big Joe Duskin, Esther Phillips, BB King, Nat King Cole, Jimmy Blanton, Benny Goodman

 

The Ilex Sisters: Showtunes: Hamilton, Rent, Next to Normal, Les Miserables, Hair, Serial Killer Barbie, Wicked, Mamma Mia! Avenue Q, Caberet

 

Inelia: New Wave: Morrissey, Duran Duran, Cyndi Lauper, Devo, The Pretenders, The Cars

 

Blue: Alternative Rock: Lou Reed, Sex Pistols, Violent Femmes, Sound Garden, The Cure

 

Genesis: Latin Alternative:  Molotov, El Gran Silencio, Café Tacuba, Ska-P, Curanderos, La Vida Boheme

 

Lachlan: Classic Rock: Grateful Dead, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Creedance, Clearwater Revival, Rolling Stones

 

We both love music and probably had just as much fun putting together the character playlists as we did the actual characters.
