    • Abstract:
      Summary: Julian lives in a world where humans have nine lives. As you shed lives, you shed your awkward phases: one death is equal to one physical and mental upgrade. His mother burned through her first eight in just a few years, but Juliann is determined to stay on his first for as long as he can. He has no intention of succumbing to the debilitating rebirth sickness that she inflicted on herself. But the regime has death incentives aimed at controlling overpopulation, and Julian becomes a target for the Burners, the school's suicide club. When Julian uncovers gaps in the rebirth system he is soon on the verge of exposing the greatest conspiracy ever unleashed on the world. -- adapted from jacket.

Booklist Reviews 2018 July #1

In 1808, a comet struck Earth, creating a parallel universe where humans have nine lives. Now, in a near future, the government, in an effort to keep the population from reaching catastrophic highs, rewards those who "burn" through their lives. Since rebirth comes with the added bonus of a physical upgrade, most citizens are only too happy to shed lives. Julian, though, is still a One; he watched his mother burn through her lives, and refuses to waste his own, even as his family suffers and his school's notorious suicide club grows interested in him. As societal pressures grow stronger, Julian starts to learn more about the rebirth system and the government that controls it—and that maybe it's not quite what it seems. This debut doesn't handle questions of mortality quite as deftly as Neal Shusterman's Arc of a Scythe series, though perhaps the comparison is unfair—Scythe (2016) was, after all, a Printz Honor Book. Still, it's a timely, undeniably fascinating concept, and readers intrigued by alternate realities will be hooked. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 June #1

Hines's chilling debut takes place in an alternate America where each person gets nine lives. The first eight times someone dies, he or she "Burns" (moves on to the next life, returning in a brand-new body). To prevent overpopulation, people are offered incentives to be euthanized in licensed extinguishment clinics on a set schedule, but Burners hold illegal, elaborately staged, and gruesome suicide parties. At 17, Julian Dex is still a One; he needs to Burn to help his family's dire financial situation, but he's haunted by his mother's disappearance and descent into retrogression. He's also worried about his best friend, who wants to join Lakeshore Academy's Burners Club, led by charismatic, cruel Nicholas. When Julian meets enigmatic Cody and her friends, who don't Burn, he learns secrets that could change their lives, and deaths, forever. Hines's fast-paced tale effectively explores the insidious intentions of a surveillance state bent on controlling mortality, and offers an intriguing group of teens who are worth rooting for as they unravel a truly terrifying conspiracy. Ages 14–up. Agent: Jim McCarthy, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (Aug.)
