Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza

Mila fights between the realization that she is an android and the feelings of being a human. She thought she was completely human her whole life, until one accident that made her doubt herself being human. Then after that everything went to a tail spin.

The book is great and has a lot of action, but nothing is really answered in this book and none of the characters are really fleshed out. Mila has questions about her previous life, about her mother's necklace she is always rubbing, and none of it is answered. There is really no romance, but I don't mind that, too many young adult books now a days are very mushy with romance and I like that this one wasn't one.

The author does a real good job describing Mila's feelings. And describing the turmoil going on inside her as she comes to the conclusions that she is in fact an android even though she has all these human feelings, looks human and feels human.

Some of the relationships in this book though feel too forced. Mila and her mom relationship seems too strong after Mila finds out the truth. Mila does a lot for this so called "mom" of her when she was nothing more than another scientist which she hates all the other ones but the one she calls "mom" and she would do anything for her. And then her relationship with Hunter seems wrong and you can just feel it the entire time that Hunter isn't who he says he is...It seems obvious.

There looks to be another book after this one. It leaves it wide open for one. It does end pretty wrapped up and isn't a cliffhanger at the end. But you are left with a lot of questions.
