is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some sci-fi magic:
Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza
Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.This one sounds good, doesn't it? I love the Bourne movies and Mila 2.0 sounds a bit similar. She finds out who she is and what they made her do. What did they make her do- they never really say. I'm thinking something along the lines of assassinate people but I'm not sure. There are a lot of things that real people would never do so it's very vague. I guess, we shall just have to read to find out. I was not, however, a huge fan of I Am Number Four (which they mention above) but I'm putting this one on my to-read list. I hope you will too.
Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past —that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.
Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.
Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity–style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel.--Goodreads
