Praise for Control:
“Control, with its mix of legitimate science and inventive fantasy, is unforgettable for all the right reasons.”—VOYA

“Control blew me away, from the depth and richness of this fascinating, disturbing vision of the future—and all its technologies—to the twists and turns and suspense that made for a thrilling ride. Zel is as authentic a character as I’ve read in a very long time. Highly recommended.”—James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner

“Kang has skillfully blended a coming-of-age, dystopia YA fiction, and some heavy duty genetics. . . Kang is a physician in real life and her science is impressive.”—Library Media Connection
