Another nomination I'd like to make is Beggars in Spain by Nancy Kress.



Quote:
In a world where the slightest edge can mean the difference between success and failure, Leisha Camden is beautiful, extraordinarily intelligent...and one of an ever-growing number of human beings who have been genetically modified to never require sleep.

Once considered interesting anomalies, now Leisha and the other "Sleepless" are outcasts—victims of blind hatred, political repression, and shocking mob violence meant to drive them from human society...and, ultimately, from Earth itself.

But Leisha Camden has chosen to remain behind in a world that envies and fears her "gift"—a world marked for destruction in a devastating conspiracy of freedom...and revenge.
You can get the ePub edition for $0.67 from BooksOnBoard.

You can get the Kindle edition for $0.99.

There is a thread about Beggars in Spain over at http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=beggars+spain. Some of the people posing have good things to say about the book and/or Nancy.
