Remake is a different kind of story than what I expected. Nine is born as part of a "batch" of twenty new humans born every month in Freedom One. All twenty are raised together until they are "Remade" on their seventeenth birthday. Before she is remade, Nine will need to choose her gender, name, and occupation among other things, but this is proving difficult for her. Her closest friend, Theron has no trouble choosing, however, and makes Nine feel safe in the knowledge that whatever she chooses, she and Theron will be together. On the way to be "Remade," a storm knocks their shuttle into the ocean, and Nine barely makes it to a nearby island where she is rescued by a family living completely off the grid. Thinking that everyone in the shuttle accident has been killed, Nine starts to learn about living life away from Freedom. Kai who is closest in age to Nine, makes life difficult for her at first but after awhile, they begin to appreciate one another. When Nine's tracker begins to malfunction, she realizes she must go back to Freedom and face her past.
Overall, this book is fairly predictable. Some of the "lessons" that Nine learns seem a bit preachy. Overall however, this book was a quick read with enough action and romance to keep the reader interested.

Lightweight but enjoyable story about a person from a place called Freedom One, where there's not much actual freedom. Of course, Nine doesn't find out about that until she washes up on the shore of a remote island where the natives still live as "savages", in family groups, monogamous couples, and having babies willy-nilly.
Of course, the super-crazy lady in charge of Freedom One is anxious to have Nine take her place in the "perfect" society and of course, Nine is balking. Like a lot of dystopian fiction, the ruling folks have a penchant for rewriting history so that it will help them out.
Kudos to Todd for the asexual orientation factor (since folks in Freedom get to choose their gender, yet neither can reproduce) and Nine's obvious insecurity with having to choose.
