In 22nd century Britain, looks are everything. But this is a culture of 'Look but don't touch'. Everyone collects contacts, but friendship and love is forbidden. Top of the social pile are the glamorous, androgynous BodyPerfects. Short, curvy Caia, doesn't fit in. Even worse, she's fighting a dangerous attraction to subversive thinker Mac. He introduces her to a forbidden world, one where she might find answers to the questions that plague her. Are the values of society really designed to encourage peace, or a subtle means of thought control? What happens to the sick, disabled and elderly Citizens? And, most important of all: is it possible to escape the Citidomes and live safely on the outside?
