{Synopsis} –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.

{My Thoughts} – This book is about a cyborg named Kaitlyn. She was a teenager when her life had been tragically taken from her. However, to do one last good deed in the world she had allowed for her body to be donated to science. She had no idea what that entailed but she wanted to make a difference no matter how big of little in the end. This book is well written and a nice and fast read. I enjoyed getting to know Kaitlyn and who she was as a human as well as the cyborg side of her. I was surprised with much of the information that had been unraveled throughout the book and even sad when I discovered that it ended with cliffhanger. I am not real fond of cliffhangers but I do look forward to reading the continuation of Kaitlyn’s story when the next book is released.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
