Review of "Wonderboy" by Maria Kjr-Madsen, read in The secret valley (Den hemmelige dal).

Outline: Julia and Adam live in a world, where many things are controlled by chips, and you order your children. And now they're about to order their first little one.

Is it science fiction? Well, of course it is.

Themes: Some children are designed, others aren't. Some children are perfect -- and some aren't. Parents have greater freedom choosing their children, on the other hand it sounds like the children have less, because their destiny are built into their genes + the expectations of the parents. And precisely how high a price will parents pay for their dream child?

Is it good? Oh yeah! And it even feels like the short story goes all the way to the logical consequence of this kind of life.
