{Spotlight of the Week} MILA 2.0 By Debra Driza

This weeks Spotlight is MILA 2.0 an upcoming science fiction thriller in the young adult genre. I'm seriously in a SCIFI kick after reading Ghost Planet and cant wait to dig into another one and one about AI! Debut author Debra Driza's series is coming out March 2013, I'm lucky enough to have an ARC and cant wait to dig into this. Plus look at these awesome covers for the prequel and book 1! What about you? Adding Mila 2.0 to your wish list?

Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.

Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past —that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.

Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.

Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity–style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel.

If you are like me and super excited for Mila 2.0, in Janurary a prequel is coming out! How cool is that!

Heart-stopping and electric, MILA 2.0: Origins: The Fire contains a short prequel story and an excerpt to MILA 2.0, the first book in a riveting Bourne Identity–style trilogy by Debra Driza.

Mila can't remember anything before the fire that took her father's life. It's normal to have some memory loss after traumatic events, but Mila doesn't remember if she's ever learned to ride a bike, or if she's ever been in love. Nothing.

What she doesn't know is that she isn't supposed to remember—that she was built in a computer science lab and programmed to forget. Because if she remembers, she might discover her true identity.

The question is: If she relived the fire, what would she see?

  1. I seriously can not wait for this book to come out. In the meantime, I have a few great sci-fi books on my to be read list, starting with "The Gyre Mission: Journey to the *sshole of the World" by Edgar Swamp. A great post apocalyptic thriller.
