FIVE YEARS AGO, Wren Connolly died. After 178 minutes, she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, but also less emotional.
The longer Reboots are under, the less human they are when they return- making Wren 178 the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, her favourite 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 still human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking pesky questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking Wren out. And yet… he’s still her newbie. When Callum falls short of Reboot standards, Wren is told to eliminate him.
But the perfect soldier is done taking orders.
I have recently finished reading REBOOT by Amy Tintera, and I absolutely loved it. It was a fairly easy read, and at 365 pages, it took me two weeks to get through it.
This story is told from the first person perspective of Wren, a hardcore Reboot who, as a result of her tell-it-like-it-is manner, is strangely appealing to the reader. From the first sentence, you won’t want to stop turning the pages.
The plot thickens when Wren is challenged by another of the newbie trainers, who believes that, despite having a reputation as being the best trainer in the center, she wouldn’t be able to train a 22.
Or can she?
When Wren chooses Callum 22, she certainly gets some strange looks, but her roommate and best friend, Ever 56, is excited about the idea of Wren spending extensive amounts of time with a not-so-bad-looking boy.
However, when testing times approach, Callum is forced to do something he refuses to, and Wren is told to eliminate him. But what are her alternatives, no one ever escapes the center unless they have outside help.
But not all the staff at the center are who they seem…
I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND this book to anyone over 12 years old, and hope you enjoyed this review. Leave me a comment if you’d like to share your opinion, or ask any more questions before committing to reading it. No worries.
Until next post!
