Star Split by Kathryn Lasky

STAR SPLIT by Kathryn Lasky was an interesting mix of science and story. Set over one thousand years in the future, this book finds the world's people not too far removed from our own 21st century folks - there are no aliens, no robots, no Jetsons-esque contraptions - except for the long strides made with human cloning, chromosome research and other genetic enhancements.

Those with bonus DNA and cultivated strengths are "Genhaunts," and in an elevated position with regards to the "Originals." One young girl discovers there is more to her family's personal history and to the process and progress of society. A good book for young readers interested in science or those wondering how the cloning of humans could happen, and how it would change our society.
