Summary
Mori and her friends live a normal life on Firefly Lane in their utopian community, Old Harmonie. In a world this safe and perfect, they've never had to question anything . . . never had to wonder about how their lives came to be. Until a new girl named Ilana moves in. She's so perfect that Mori and her friends are curious . . . Where exactly did Ilana come from, and why does she act so strange sometimes? When Ilana's secret is revealed, the kids on Firefly Lane must decide- is it finally time to start questioning the only world they've ever known?
In a stunningly imaginative story, critically acclaimed author Megan Frazer Blakemore takes readers on a journey with five friends--new and old--that will have everyone talking about not just what makes people human, but what makes them true friends.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Mori, Theo, Julia, and Benji are the kids of Firefly Lane in Old Harmonie, a carefully planned village of the future, located just outside Cambridge, Massachusetts. Each of them is 12 years old, and they are looking forward to another idyllic summer together. Their only worry is that they must choose their latency, a powerful trait (like puzzle solving, physical agility, or photographic memory) that will be super-enhanced later that year. Then a new girl moves in for the first time since anyone can remember, and Firefly Lane will never be quite the same. Ilana is beautiful, brave, athletic, and practically perfect maybe too perfect? and her strangeness forces the kids to challenge their parents, their utopian community, and their own ideas about life, loyalty, and humanity. The story starts slowly, and Ilana's secret may be obvious to observant readers, but the end will have children turning pages and thinking about important questions. An excellent choice for those who love Lois Lowry's The Giver or Margaret Peterson Haddix's sci-fi adventures.--Zeitlin Cooke, Ariel Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Twelve-year-old Mori narrates this suspenseful tale set in the not-so-distant future in Old Harmonie, a closed community founded by the Krita corporation on the outskirts of Boston. "We never stopped experimenting and innovating," says Mori of her home, "but outside they were just struggling to get by." On their 13th birthdays, children in communities like Old Harmonie learn their genetic code, discover whether they are "natural" or genetically "designed," and reveal their chosen "latency," a hidden aptitude that will then be released through surgery. When a new girl, Ilana, moves onto Firefly Lane, her presence disrupts the comfortable dynamics among Mori and her best friends, Julia, Theo, and Benji, who find something "just a little off" about Ilana, despite her easygoing manner. After their group coalesces into "The Firefly Five," the children's gradual realization of Ilana's true nature leads to shocking and painful revelations about their community, their parents, and themselves. In this gripping novel, Blakemore (The Friendship Riddle) creates a disturbingly ordered world in which questions about friendship and family offer courageous and heartwarming testaments to the human spirit.
