People are dying...

Tahlia and Quentin live in a world where the US population is starving to death one hundred years after a government-mandated "cure" for obesity. Tahlia's ancestors escaped genetic mutation. Now she and her tribe must hide in the wilds of South Dakota to avoid being harvested for their untainted DNA. When Tahlia is captured on a supply run, she becomes a lab rat for the scientists searching for an antidote. The fate of humanity lies buried in Tahlia's genetic code, and her own survival lies in the hands of Quentin–the only son of the very doctors who want to cut her open.

Harrowing and suspenseful, Untreatable transports readers to a dystopian future where everything is not as it seems and resilience of body–and spirit–is required to survive.

Alicia's Review - 

Untreatable is not your typical YA Dystopian. The government has found a cure to end obesity, or have they? Decades after the government ejected everyone the world is struggling. People are dropping like flies from maturation. Their bodies are metabolizing their food as fast as they eat it. There are the well to do in the city that are able to receiving a weekly vaccination that is helping to slow down their metabolism, and then there are those that are the descendants of those that originally escaped the injections. Their DNA is pure and unaltered. The government is searching them out in hopes that they will be the cure to save them all.
