Kira is an anomaly in the clone world, born of the should-be sterile Sarah Manning. Though well-loved, Kira’s upbringing has been a rocky one. Left behind by her rebellious young mother, Kira was often on the sidelines; reared instead by the compassionate Mrs. S. But when Sarah found herself at the center of the clone conspiracy, she recommitted to her daughter, showing a fierce and unstoppable love. And though Kira’s world is a turbulent mess, she possesses an eerie calm for a child her age. After recent experiences of loss and violence, Kira grows distrustful of her mom’s promise that everything will be okay.
