When She Woke by Hillary Jordan


Bellwether Prize Winner Hillary Jordan’s provocative new novel is the fiercely imagined story of a woman struggling to navigate an America of a not-too-distant future, where the line between church and state has been eradicated and convicted felons are no longer imprisoned and rehabilitated but chromed – their skin color is genetically altered to match the class of their crime – and then released back into the population to survive as best they can. Hannah is a Red; her crime is murder.
