The Fast and Furious 6 was the top-grossing movie in America for the second week in a row (I only know that because I went to pub trivia night last night, heh) which tells me there's a hunger for action out there. One way to feed that hunger? Reading our high-impact June Bookmobile book of the month:
REBOOT by Amy Tintera!To participate, buy a copy or borrow a copy of the book from the library/a friend/etc, then return on Tuesday, June 25th at 6pm PST/9pm EST for a live chat with Amy, here on YA Highway. Happy Reading!
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.
