When fifteen-year-old Tilly is wrongly sent to a Young Offenders Institute - a far cry from her safe, suburban upbringing - she's desperately bored and unhappy until she meets Sadie. Now released and living in Sadie's bedsit, the pair soon throw themselves into a contented life of petty criminality. But when sinister landlady and social worker Lynda comes to take DNA swabs - purportedly for a scientific investigation into the genetic roots of criminal behavior - their teenage idyll is shattered. For a joke, Tilly swaps the two girls' samples, setting into motion a gripping story of mistaken identity and corporate malice. With its depiction of shoplifting techniques, shadowy revolutionaries, alcopops, sperm banks, genetics, adolescense and a lot of smoking, "The Heritage" is both funny and sad, grittily real yet exuberantly imagined, utterly strange and yet strangely moving.

Only if you're willing to tolerate wonky formatting. Even the mostly text PDF files come out looking a bit off.
I haven't had a huge problem with pdfs. It's worth trying.

The PDF format looks REALLY weird on this PDF!  I've e-mailed several PDF's to my kindle and have never had a problem.  This one looks really bizarre.  It sounds good, but I think I'll pass.

ugh I don't like pdfs on the kindle.  And the "publisher making me take it down" sounds like a marketing ploy. But i'll check it out. See if it sparks my interest just the same.
