Book Review


Nita is seventeen and has been dissecting cadavers for as long as she can remember. Her parents capture and sell body parts of human mutations on the internet to the highest bidder. Usually the bids are in the millions. The book’s title comes from the fact that nothing is wasted, not even bones. Nita is abducted and finds herself on the other side of the scalpel. Left to her own devices, she fights to survive in a world that considers her unnatural.
