The Chemical Garden Trilogy

A chilling dystopian trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano!

In a world where males have a lifespan of 25 years and females only live to 20, girls are kidnapped and sold as polygamous brides while geneticists seek an antidote to restore the human race . Sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is one of those girls: seperated from her brother, kidnapped, and sold to become Linden's bride.
 
Despite the temptations of Linden's wealthy, privileged world and Linden's love, Rhine is determined to escape. But in a world that continues to spiral into anarchy, is there any hope for freedom?
