Publisher's Summary

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 17 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 - Callum Reyes - is the worst she's ever seen. As a 22, Callum is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he's always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet, he's still her newbie. 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 that 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.

Weak characterization unmakes the story.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this book. The characters behave in odd and illogical ways even within the context of the story. This really holds the story back which otherwise has an interesting premise.

What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

Very good differentiation of characters.

Heart-racing, action packed - I'm ready for more!

My first thought after finishing this book (in one sitting): WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

Unlike anything I’ve read in the past few months, Reboot was so gripping and thrilling that I was unable to put it down until it was done. I found myself flying through the pages, racing to the end and at the same time, not wanting it to end. I mean, just – WOW.

In post-apocalyptic Texas (every other state in America was destroyed due to a virus), reboots are teenagers who come back to life after dying and are then given to the government as bounty hunters except the reboots don’t actually get anything out of it. Ugh, can you imagine following every single order, always listening to someone else, never getting what you want to do – especially as a teenager? Yuck!

What I thought most about during this book (and what frustrated me) was how these reboots are treated so..inhumanly – not only by the government, but by their [former] families. Not an ounce of pity or kindness was given to these teens. Supposedly these reboots don’t feel any emotion, but do you think they act emotionless because of their situation or because that’s how they really are? I mean, if I was treated poorly and like an animal, I would probably just act emotionless out of a survival/defense mechanism.

Which brings me to Callum, sweet Callum. A 22, and such a endearing boy. From the very first scene, I was drawn to his sweet disposition. Every scene with him is filled with this tension – you want to protect him, you want him to grow, you want him to kick butt even though you know he’s a 22. For some reason, he reminded me a lot of Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth. I think it was their kind hearts and adoration they held for their girls.

Reboot is one that fans of Divergent are going to want to pick up for sure. It’s heart-racing, action packed, and had me begging for more.
