BZRK by Michael Grant
Other characters are the evil twins, conjoined twins, Charles and Benjamin Armstrong who run the Nexus group. On their side is one of the best "twitchers" as the people who do this are called, and he goes by the name Bug Man. Vincent is one of the good guys, but he is an interesting character as he has an actual medical issue that he can't feel pleasure.
So we've got Noah trying to do something to make up for what happened to his brother, and Sadie who is now alone in the world, with a chance to get revenge for her brother and father. In BZRK, everyone takes a new name, Sadie chooses Plath from the basic rules given to her, and then Noah is named Keats.
I can see that for some this book may be way too technical, but that is kind of what I really liked about it! And reading all the descriptions of what things looked like at that small of scale was kind of cool. I could totally see a movie out of this, but only if someone who could afford awesome special effects did it, so that they could make this stuff look as real as possible.
