Sumarry :

Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders

Review :

I found this book in YouTube. And  when I checked out the trailer, I was totally amazed! I wanted the book. And I was really happy when I finally get a copy at a local bookstore!

The main reason that I wanted this book so bad is that I found that the idea is very fresh and original. So, thank you Miss Amy Tintera for proving those fools-who-have-been-saying-that-all-dystopians-are-the-same that they are wrong. Because this book is so fresh that they can’t compare it with others or they will prove that they really are fools.

Let’s talk about the character. One of the reasons that I wanted this book so bad is that I wanted to see Wren’s character. I wanted to see an emotionless reboot’s character. I wanted to see how she narrated the story without emotion but still able to pull it off. And it turned out to be wonderful! We can totally see the difference between having emotion or not! And Wren isn’t emotionless. She has it all along. It’s just that the emotions were buried with her past and conditions. She just need something to trigger it.

Next character : Calumn. Calumn is definitely not on top of my hottest book boyfriends list. I gotta be honest about it. He’s cute, strong willing, funny, and everything. But I’m feeling that he doesn’t have that one thing. That one component that make me love him. Point is, he’s just not my type. Maybe he’s yours. I thought of him like Peeta Melark? Does any of you interested?

Next up, the writtings. The writtings is good I guess. Althought at some point, I felt that the writing is a little bit rought. With these fresh ideas, it’s hard to picture the environment that she has create. If she could give more decription about it, I think it will be wonderful.

I guess that’s all I could say for this book. Thanks for coming!

I love and definetley agree with your review :) When I read this book awhile back, I remember really enjoying the main character and her journey to finding her emotions, and then finding Callum who opened her up to herself. I agree that the writing was a little rough, and I can't say that I loved the writing the whoole time. LOVE your review!
