Red

A pregnant teenager donates her embryo to a recipient mother who wants red-haired children. The doctor who pioneered the technology performs the microsurgery exquisitely.

Except this isn't a fairy tale.

Review by: Ken Liu on July 30, 2011 :
Nature tends to publish "hard scifi" -- the sort that focuses on ideas. This one raises uncomfortable questions -- to which the obvious answers are not always the right ones. Well worth reading.
