This book was pretty good, but not the best. Overall Lia is kind of self centered, and that is a trait I HATE in main characters. Surprisingly, I actually like her sister Zo, who comes to realize that Lia isn't the same person she used to be. I think I would have liked this book a bit more if Zo had been the main character and had been telling the story through her eyes. For example, Lia is rudely awakened by finding out that Zo had made friends with her old friends before the accident, and had stole her boyfriend. Understandably, Lia is kind of mad. But what was the girl suppose to do? They were all worried about her, and they became friends over the month she was out. I feel like maybe this would have made a better story. But overall, I'm actually wanting to read the second book in the series.

In my opinion this book was pretty bad. The beginning was okay but after that I had to force myself to keep reading, the other two books I couldn't bring myself to read

The first half of the book was a bit agonizing having to read through the main character Lia's shallow and self-centered lens; however, it helps contrast the life she used to lead with her new reality. Lia's inner transformation felt believable. In the middle the story really picked up as we discover more about the dark reality of the world outside her bubble. I found the concept and the storyline intriguing and am looking forward to the second book in the trilogy.

This series is amazing! Very surprising at times, but all in all, the character interactions are delightfully realistic. The sci fi was a bit creepy, but suspenseful. I definitely recommend this series!!!!

Book 1 of a Trilogy:

Lia wakes from a horrible car crash only to find she's not the beautiful perfect Lia she used to be, but a skinner a mech - a machine with her mind. She is forced to become acquainted with her new body that she hates, and tries to live like nothing's changed; but everything's changed. She struggles to come to terms with her new reality and her identity. Lia and the people around her question whether she's even a human, whether she's just a copy, or whether she's a machine programmed with the real (and dead) Lia's memories. In the process, she learns more about the reality of the dark post-apocalyptic world she lives in, which is very different than what she had been brought up to believe.

Back cover:
"What if you could live forever?
The Download was supposed to change the world. It was supposed to mean the end of aging, the end of death, the birth of a new humanity. But it wasn't supposed to happen to someone like Lia Khan. And it wasn't supposed to ruin her life.
Lia knows she should be grateful that she didn't die in the accident. The Download saved her, but it also changed her, forever. She can deal with being a freak. She can deal with the fear in her parents' eyes and the way her boyfriend flinches at her touch. But she can't deal with what she knows, deep down, every time she forces herself to look in the mirror: She's not the same person she used to be. Maybe she's not even a person at all.
