Skinned by Robin Wasserman

Rating: 4/5
Summary: Lia Kahn was perfect. She was popular, a perfect boyfriend, rich, and gorgeous. Then one day, Lia got in a accident that should have killed her. She wakes up to find out that she has been downloaded to a human-like robot. Lia is not pleased with the process and doesn't want to be a "Skinner".
Lia goes back to school and things have changed. Her friends have left her behind, because of what she has become. Her boyfriend is disgusted by her and starts going out with her younger sister, Zoe. Lia is still the same girl for the most part. She finds companship in Auden, the class nerd, but does he like her for her brain or her technology.
Lia soon meet a group of people that have had the "download process", too. They call themselves, mech-heads. They want her to join them. Can she trust them, but what else does she have to lose?
Notes: This book was really good. I liked the characters and the philosophy in it. Like what makes you human. It also had great emotion, even though that she isn't suppose to be able to feel anything. At first, I had a hard time getting in to this, but then could not put it down. The character had a strong voice. I can not wait for the next book in this trilogy, because the book does have a major cliff hanger. I reccomend this if you liked Mary E. Pearson's The Adoration of Jenna Fox or M.T. Anderson's Feed.

Happy Reading!
