Eighteen-year-old Helper12 works as a Baby Helper, taking care of babies until they reach six months of age, and move elsewhere. After witnessing an illegal adoption, the new parents purchase Helper12 to work as a Nanny, even though she’s not qualified.

The wealthy Sloanes aren’t as interested in their new child as they should be. The couple ships off on vacation, leaving Helper12 with the baby, a domestic Helper, and Driver. Thomas Sloane, the couple’s biological son, also stays at the mansion.

This is a YA dystopian, so you know what happens: Helper12 and Thomas fall in love and rebel against Society by planning an escape. More intriguing, however, is the mystery of a boy named Gregory, but otherwise it’s nothing new. That doesn’t make it less enjoyable, but rather less shocking. I linked the clues long before Helper12 did, and I wasn’t even trying. Still, fans of Ally Condie and Julia Karr should give Helper12 a whirl if looking for more of the same.
