Item description for Anomaly by Krista McGee...

Overview
Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds left to live. The toxic gas that will complete her annihilation is invading her bloodstream. But she is not afraid.
Thalli is different than others in The State. She feels things. She asks questions. And in the State, this is not tolerated. The Ten scientists who survived the nuclear war that destroyed the world above believe that emotion was at the core of what went wrong?and they have genetically removed it from the citizens they have since created. Thalli has kept her malformation secret from those who have?monitored her?for most of her life, but when she receives an ancient piece of music to record as her community's assigned musician, she can no longer keep her emotions secreted away.
Seen as a threat to the harmony of her Pod, Thalli is taken to the Scientists for immediate annihilation. But before that can happen, Berk?her former Pod mate who is being groomed as a Scientist?steps in and persuades the Scientists to keep Thalli alive as a test subject.
The more time she spends in the Scientist?s Pod, the clearer it becomes that things are not as simple as she was programmed to believe. She hears stories of a Designer?stories that?fill her mind with more questions: Who can she trust? What is this emotion called love? And what if she isn?t just an anomaly, but part of a greater design?

Publishers Description
Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds to live. The toxic gas that will complete her annihilation is invading her bloodstream. But she is not afraid.

Decades before Thalli's birth, the world was decimated by a nuclear war. But life continued deep underground, thanks to a handful of scientists known as The Ten. There they created genetically engineered human beings who are free of emotions in the hope that war won't threaten the world again.

Thalli is an anomaly, born with the ability to feel emotions and a sense of curiosity she can barely contain. She has survived so far by hiding her differences. But then her secret is discovered when she's overwhelmed by the emotion of an ancient piece of music.

The Ten quickly schedule her annihilation, but her childhood friend, Berk--a scientist being groomed by The Ten--convinces them to postpone her death and study her instead. While in the Scientists' Pod, Thalli and Berk form a dangerous alliance, one strictly forbidden by the constant surveillance.

As her life ticks a way, she hears rumors of someone called the Designer--someone even more powerful than The Ten. What's more, the parts of her that have always been an anomaly could in fact be part of a much larger plan. And the parts of her that she has always guarded could be the answer she's been looking for all along.Thalli must sort out what to believe and who to trust, before her time runs out.

." . . the first in what has the potential to be a fascinating trilogy of general appeal. McGee's simple narrative belies the novel's complexity, a factor that will make this intriguing book accessible to a wide variety of teen readers." --"Booklist"

Reviews - What do customers think about Anomaly?

Inspiring and a beautiful dystopian  Jan 6, 2015
This book was truly amazing! I can't believe I waited so long to read it!
First of all, the fact that these people are not allowed to show emotion or ask questions is terrible and sad, for what is life if we can't feel? While some of the people in Thalli's pod have no problem with this, it grows increasingly hard for Thalli to hide the fact that she is curious and feels many emotions all the time.

I loved how Thalli played her emotions through her music! I play the flute, and sometimes the piano, so I understand what it's like to feel the emotions and see the story in a piece of music, and play the music with your own emotions.

While at the scientists pod she finds out that her world is not as it seems, that the scientists lie, she gets to spend more time with her old, loyal, and wonderful friend Berk, and she meets a man named John who teaches her about the Designer, love, and faith.

Anomaly by Krista McGee is beautifully written and at times heartbreaking. I loved going through Thalli and Berk's journey of faith, and finding out truths instead of believing in all of the lies. I couldn't put Anomaly down, I just had to find out what happened with these characters (this book made me bite my lips, it was so nerve wrecking at times). Thalli and Berk's relationship seemed so real, throughout the book I felt their emotions, I cried, I smiled, I hoped. I even caught myself almost praying for the characters while I was reading!

Will Thalli be allowed to live? If she does will she have to live the rest of her life as a lab rat? Will she and Berk be able to see each other? What will happen if they get caught in any schemes?
Anomaly will make you think and wonder about what you would do if you were in a situation similar to this. It is a must read book for Christians, and even people that aren't Christians should enjoy the dystopian elements, and the problems the characters go through!

(I was nervous to read a dystopian book. I know that everyone else seems to like them, but I wasn't sure if I would. Well, as you can see I definitely liked Anomaly and will be ready to read more dystopian books!)
 
She's Made me a Believer in a new Genre!  Aug 13, 2013
*"Dystopia" - an imaginary society in which social or technological trends have culminated in a greatly diminished quality of life or degradation of values.
Anomaly is a young adult novel which tells the story of a dystopian world. While the book was a little too "sci-fi" for my personal taste, McGee does an amazing job of weaving a story that involves your mind and emotions. The story is told strictly from the vantage point of a seventeen year old musician who struggles to make sense of what's going on around her. I loved McGee's character John and how she weaved the gospel into the story through his interactions with Thalli. While this isn't my favorite genre, McGee has succeeded in making me want to read the next novel coming in July 2014 Luminary. What will become of Thalli, John, Rhen, and Berk?
 
Dystopian Fiction At Its Best!!!  Jul 30, 2013
I could not wait for the release of Anomaly! I love that author Krista McGee has combined the elements that make dystopian so great with the elements that make Christian YA fiction so great!
I was pleasantly surprised at how the author used music and incorporated it into the story...beautiful!
I love main character, Thalia! She goes against the grain and thinks outside of the box and she questions every thing! One night, Thalia is taken to an isolation area and escapes. She then witnesses an event that changes everything and exposes even more cracks on the system she has known and trusted her entire life.
The author did a great job of keeping me guessing at what was real and what wasn't, who Thailia should trust and who she should not trust.
The relationship between Thailia and Berk was so sweet and refreshing, a cool example of love.
I also love the character John, his backstory, his faith in God and his conversations with Thalia are some of my favorite scenes in the book!
Fans of the Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie and dystopian fiction fans in general wont want to miss ANOMALY by Krista McGee!!! This is definitely dystopian fiction at its best!!! This book exceeded every expectation I had for it. I love it!!! I cannot wait for book 2!!! Seriously, don't miss this one. One of my FAVE reads of 2013!!!
 
The theme stays with you after the story ends...  Jul 19, 2013
First, a big thank you hug to Krista and Litfuse for sending Anomaly: I really, really wanted to read and review this one!

Thalli, named for the Thallium, the element with the number 81 in the periodic table.
All humans created in The State had been named for elements,
and she was no different, as it was meant to be.
Nobody was supposed to be any different,
anomalies to the careful design were not to be tolerated.
Thalli knew this, as did Berkelium {Berk} and Rhenium {Rhen}.
Everyone in Pod C, and in all the other pods, knew it as well. Yet Astatine {Asta} still became an anomaly and had to be taken away. That was when they were all nine years of age...the first time Thalli ever saw an anomaly and the consequences that being one brought.

It was not until she was seventeen did she begin to seriously display her own abnormalities.
Thalli was the Pod musician, and when she played it was not only a beneficial function that calmed her Podmates' minds and increased their productivity, she played to let her happiness and grief loose in the music.
Those things, emotions, where not supposed to exist here.
Emotions caused conflict and conflict had caused the great desolation on the surface of the earth, where no one could now go.
It was a strange, old parchment from a primitive ancient composer that whose notes, when she released them from her violin, where so achingly beautiful that her heart broke open and emotion poured forth. Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring.
Thalli didn't understand the words, but she knew what the music meant to her.

And we pause as we read Anomaly , and we praise God for creating emotion, for giving us the ability to Love, for presenting us with aching beauty, for the simple yet heavenly pleasure of looking up at the moon. We Praise God for His Son, for letting us know Him and call Him ours, for giving us His Word and His people to help us know him better.

This world, where they hope for salvation-from-the-scientists, this hidden State ruled supposedly by ten enlightened men, this place where simulation can control the mind as easily as reality, it makes us pause and think about the meanings of things. Like every good story, your brain continues to wrestle with it after the book is "over."

I am so glad to hear that Luminary: Book Two will be out in early 2014!
