About Marisa Noelle
Marisa had plenty of ideas for career and still regrets not moving to Hawaii to train dolphins and pretend the real world didn't exist. Struggling with anxiety led her to the field of psychology. Heavily influenced by underdog movies such as The Karate Kid she realized her mission in life was to help other people, through any medium. Embarking on a psychology degree, she wanted to emulate her hero, Jodie Foster, from Silence of the Lambs and actually tried to secure work experience at Broadmoor. Thankfully she left the idea of criminal profiling behind, but uses many of these aspects in her novels.
Now a full-time novelist, she lives in Surrey, UK with her husband and three children.

GENETIC MODIFICATION HAS TAKEN OVER THE WORLD.
A new class system now exists, dividing those who have enhancements and those who do not.
Sixteen-year-old Silver Melody, a proud unadjusted, must navigate a world where 80% of the population has modified their DNA. Known as the altereds, those people possess enhancements like wings, tails, and increased strength or intelligence. Silver’s parents created the nanite pill used to deliver these genetic modifications for altruistic reasons, but are now forced to make combinations of terrifying power.
When the president declares all unadjusteds must take a nanite, Silver has no choice but to flee the city with her father and some friends to prevent the extinction of the unadjusteds.
With Silver’s mother in prison for treason, Silver’s father is the unadjusteds’ only hope at finding a cure. But when Silver’s father is captured by the president’s almost immortal army, hope of a cure is lost. Vicious hellhounds are on Silver’s trail, and her only chance to recover her father involves teaming up with a new group of unlikely friends before all humanity is lost.
Praise for The Unadjusteds ★★★★★
“A pacy dystopia that romps along - speculative fiction at its most moreish! I love books exploring questions like this...what does playing god mean?

The writing was fantastic and the pace was perfect throughout - I was gripped from the first page. The characters were well drawn and I cannot wait to see what happens to them next! I could easily see this being picked up for a film option.” – Catherine Emmett (Author)
“As soon as I read the synopsis for this book I was dying to know more. The concept really intrigued me – a world where the majority of the population have altered their DNA?
