Joma West's Face is a speculative novel about designer babies, social media fame, race, and the lies we allow ourselves to believe in order to make us feel whole.
Life is competitive; all the best babies are designed now.
Schuyler and Madeline Burroughs have the perfect Face—rich and powerful enough to assure their dominance in society.
But in SchAddie’s household, cracks are beginning to appear. Schuyler is bored and taking risks. Maddie is becoming brittle, her happiness ever more fleeting. And their menial is fighting the most bizarre compulsions.
In Face, skin color is an aesthetic choice designed by professionals, consent is a pre-checked box on the path to social acceptance, and your online profile isn’t just the most important thing—it’s the only thing.
