    " This book was extremely easy for me. Not only was the font big but the amount of pages was pretty low. Also, i understood the entire book perfectly so i didnt need any clarification, reading it went quite fast. The book is basically about girl who gets in a car accident, she is in critical condition and is expected to die. To attempt to save her life her parents use 'biogel' to recreate her entire brain and body. Biogel is a blue gel with special chips and cells in it that can hold memories and essentially keep someone alive without any vital organs. Jenna's (the car accident girl)parents were only able to save 10% of her brain, but its the most important 10%. Jenna wakes up a year later and doesnt remember anything. Eventually the chips in her brain peice things together and she gets all her memory back. The plot was really good, but i guessed the end halfway through the book. I would have given it a two for that reason but the author used alot of details and elaborated on almost everything. She also put short poems in between chapters. Anways pretty good book, but an easy reader. "

    " Fantastic story! Love the idea and the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista Stevens | 1/25/2014

    " What medicine and technology can do in the near future challenges our understanding of what does it mean to be human. Jenna has holes in her memory and can't quite figure out what's been happening. Her parents are acting suspiciously and witholding information. Her grandmother seems to despise her. As Jenna starts to try and remember, she comes closer and closer to a truth that she might not want to know. I really liked this book - another teacher found it adequate and a second rated it a little higher, though not as high as I did. Putting it on the summer reading lists - will see what kids think... "

    " I liked this book, but I wish the ending would have been different. I am curious about the sequels. I will recommend this book to my students who have read other current science fiction like Unwind. This book is not as good as Unwind, but I still really liked it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mirele Davis | 11/16/2013

    " Though slow to begin, this book grabs you around page 50 and doesn't let go. Raises fascinating questions relating to medical ethics and biotechnology. Guys and girls (but girls more so) grade 8 and up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 5/22/2011

    " Slow in some parts, but otherwise liked it. Explores the question of what makes us who we are, and can we be more than our (or other people's) perceptions. "
