Until the next morning. When Ethan awakens as a girl. Ethan is a Changer, a little known, ancient race of humans who live out each of their four years of high school as a different person. After graduation, Changers choose which version of themselves they will be forever, and no, they cannot go back to who they were before the changes began. Ethan must now live as Drew Bohner, a petite blonde with an unfortunate last name and navigate the treacherous waters of freshman year while also following the rules: Never tell anyone what you are. Never disobey the Changers Council, and never, ever fall in love with another Changer. Oh, and Drew also has to battle a creepy underground syndicate called "Abiders", as well as the sadistic school queen bee, Chloe. And she cant even confide in her best friend Audrey, who can never know the real her, without risking both of their lives. Fans of the books of John Green, the Joss Whedonverse and empathy between humans will find much to love in this first of a four part series that tracks the journey of an average suburban boy who becomes an incredible young woman , who becomes a reluctant hero, who becomes the person she was meant to be. Because, while changing the world can kinda suck, it sure beats never knowing who you really are.

Children of Eden : a novel / Joey Graceffa with Laura L. Sullivan.
"Rowan is a second child in a world where population control measures make her an outlaw, marked for death. She can never go to school, make friends, or get the eye implants that will mark her as a true member of Eden. Indeed, her kaleidoscopic eyes may very well give her away to the ruthless Center government. Outside of Eden, Earth is poisoned and dead. All animals and most plants have been destroyed by a man-made catastrophe. Long ago, the brilliant scientist Aaron Al-Baz saved a pocket of civilization by designing the EcoPanopticon, a massive computer program that hijacked all global technology and put it to use preserving the last vestiges of mankind. Humans will wait for thousands of years in Eden until the EcoPan heals the world" --
