The Mod Code by Heidi Tankersley is about one girl and the twin brothers who love her. The only life Sage remembers is on her mother's farm in Kansas. Her best friend is Beckett. When her world is turned upside down, she learns she had a life before Kansas, and Beckett is one of two boys who share her love. Beckett and Jack are the sons of an obsessed scientist who is determined to recover stolen genetic code that will create superhuman soldiers. The twins struggle to protect the girl while preventing their father from getting his hands on the missing code.

Heidi Tankersley pulls no punches with The Mod Code. The world she created is cruel and at times horrific, with teenagers fighting a courageous battle against evil and a demented father while working through an uncontrollable attraction to each other. While Tankersley touches on how genetic code can be altered to make bigger, better human beings, the real story is how these young people live and die in a battle to protect mankind from corrupt forces.

The Mod Code characters are engaging and each one is unique, making it easy to follow the changes in point of view from chapter to chapter. The action scenes will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat, as you pray the good guys make it out alive. This book could just as easily develop into a popular young adult series or remain a satisfying stand alone. My vote is for the former.
