Summary: When a high school student discovers the cure to death, she learns how that knowledge could change her life'or end it'in this propulsive and spell-binding thriller and YA debut from Marti Leimbach, bestselling author of Age of Consent and Daniel Isn't Talking. Kira Adams is finding high school difficult. She's awkward and shy, plus she may flunk out if she doesn't stop obsessing about science, her passion and the one thing she's good at. Desperate to pay off her mother's debts, she enters a prestigious science contest with a big cash prize. But the contest isn't for students, and Kira must spend a week at a conference with other prizewinners pretending to be an adult with a PhD, not a timid high school senior. There Kira draws the attention of the celebrated scientist Dr. Gregory Munn, as well as his handsome assistant, landing a part-time job at his famous laboratory. Her job is mostly about cleaning floors and lab equipment, until one night Kira stumbles across a way of reviving a lab rat that has died in her care. Suddenly she's the remarkable wunderkind, the girl who can bring back the dead. For a moment her future seems secure. But as Kira discovers, science can be a dangerous business. She's soon swept up in an international rivalry, with forces at work she'd never imagined and consequences that threaten her life. Overcoming her shyness and using her unique intelligence will be the keys to her survival.
