Publisher Comments:

When Clair's friend Libby receives a coded note promising Improvement—the chance to change your body any way you want—Clair thinks it's a hoax. Sure, the advanced technology of a d-mat booth will transport you anywhere instantly—from a small town in Maine to an abandoned research station in Switzerland—but can it really make you taller, stronger, and more beautiful? Despite Clair's skepticism, Libby is determined to give it a try.

What starts as Libby's dream turns into Clair's nightmare when Libby falls into a deadly trap. With the help of Jesse, the school freak, and a mysterious—but powerful—stranger called Q, Clair's attempt to protect Libby leads her to a world of conspiracies and cover-ups. Soon her own life is at risk, and Clair is chased across the world in a desperate race against time.

Action and danger fuel Sean Williams's near-future tale of technology, identity, and the lengths to which one girl will go to save her best friend.

When a coded note promises improvement—the chance to change your body any way you want, making it stronger, taller, more beautiful—Clair thinks its too good to be true, but her best friend, Libby, is determined to give it a try . . . only to fall into a deadly trap. With the help of the school freak and a mysterious stranger, Clair races against the clock and around the world to save Libby, even as every step draws her deeper into a deadly world of cover-ups and conspiracies.

About the Author

Sean Williams is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of several novels for adults as well as the coauthor of the middle grade series Troubletwisters with Garth Nix. As a resident of South Australia—which he reports is a lovely place a long way away from the rest of the world—Sean has often dreamed of stepping into a booth and being somewhere else, instantly. This has led to a fascination with the social, psychological, and moral implications of such technology. When not pondering such weighty matters, Sean can generally be found eating chocolate (actually, he eats chocolate when pondering these matters, too).
