This was one of my favourite books when I was at school, but on revisiting it, I found it clunkier than I remembered - it's not one of this author’s best. That said, I still think it's enjoyable. The plot mixes a bunch of smart kids, some telepathic babies, a greedy corporation, and a couple of normal, ethically inclined adults. ( )
