In middle school I found this book in the library, it was about children growing up in a world like the movie Gattaca, and they were all genetically engineered/enhanced, and were raised in the schools and in one scene, they walked by this "old age" factory where seniors were going to either die or something and the kids were taught to embrace death as part of the cycle....its been like 13 years since I read this book, so some facts might be jumbled....does any of this sound familiar??

 OMG I know the book...hold on...I'm a go look!

EDIT- Do you know if it was about kids and if it was necessarily written for a juvenile audience...because I thought of Brave New World by Aldous Huxley after looking up the movie...

Oh yay! There is a very obscure hard to find movie version of it too. My high school English teacher bought a copy off ebay for shipping fees.
