Genetic engineering has produced a compliant population, and violent crime is rare. Jayna is a brilliant mathematical modeler, producing accurate predictions that are both good for the world and good for her employer's bottom line. When a string of events contradicts her forecasts, Jayna suspects she needs more data and better intuition. To understand what it means to be 'normal', she disrupts her strict daily routine, leading to new experiences, and - perhaps most dangerous - new emotions.
