Author: The McKissacks

In year 2170, history repeats itself. You’d think the future would bring happiness and freedom for all. But sometimes lessons learned are forgotten. Kidzworld reviews The Clone Codes by the McKissacks, a futuristic sci-fi book for teens.


Virtual School

Leanna is your average 13 year old. Her father and twin sister died in a farcar accident when she was young. Now she lives with her mother. She is one of the first teens to attend a new All-Virtual School. No more crowded hallways, no need to leave home. She attends class virtually, seeing and hearing her classmates as if they were actually there. But the best part is the history lessons. Instead of reading boring textbooks, Leanna gets to experience historical moments virtually, like bring a slave on the run with Harriet Tubman.


The Liberty Bell Movement

In reality, the world is constantly evolving. Clones live amongst people, but they’re not considered sentient (they don’t have human emotions). But Leanna’s mother thinks otherwise. She’s part of an illegal organization called The Liberty Bell Movement, who fight for clone rights. Unfortunately, the government considers them terrorists.


Proof

But The Liberty Bell Movement has proof that clones are just like humans, proof that is both illegal and revolutionary. And it’s up to Leanna to change her beliefs, face a horrifying truth, and fight for the cause.


The Bottom Line

The Clone Codes is both educational and exciting for sci-fi lovers. The story is a futurist version of past events. In the 1800’s, black slaves weren’t given the same rights as other people. They weren’t considered fully functional human beings. Nowadays, that logic seems ridiculous. So why would the functionality of clones be any different? The Clone Codes really makes your fight for the underdogs. It’s a powerful story.
