Donate Body to Science. Check.
When seventeen-year-old Kaitlyn checked the box, she never suspected she’d have her life–and her body–stolen from her. She awakens one day in a secret laboratory to discover that her body is now half-robot and is forced to hide her own secret: that she still has human emotions and a human mind. If the scientists who made her find out, they’ll erase what remains of who she was.
Kaitlyn finds an unlikely ally in Lucas, a handsome, brilliant scientist who can’t get over the guilt he feels knowing she was once a vibrant, beautiful young woman. He never expected a science project to affect him the way she does. As he tries to help her rediscover her past, he finds himself falling for the brave girl struggling to find her place and acceptance between the human and computer worlds.
I saw a review for this book on another blog way back in January and it sounded fantastic. Exactly like my sort of book. So I was ecstatic when I was approved for it on Netgalley. Unfortunately I have been too busy to read it until now.
I loved Kaitlyn. She is clever and very intriguing. She is a lab rat who is hiding her feelings. After everything they did to her they assumed that she no longer had any emotions. Kaitlyn was petrified that if she did tell them they would take away what little she had left. It was quite moving to see her struggle.
Lucas oh Lucas. He is hot and steamy. He is extremely clever, finishing top of his class. He feels guilty because without him they wouldn’t have had the code to make Kaitlyn and a part of him thinks that what they have done just isn’t right.
Quess is a really great friend to Kaitlyn she is a nice, sweet girl.
I absolutely loved this book. I cannot wait for the rest of the series. It is going to be very interesting.
