Cora should remember every detail about the night her stepsister, Hannah, fell down a flight of stairs to her death, especially since her Cerepin - a sophisticated brain-computer interface - may have recorded each horrifying moment. But when she awakens after that night, her memories gone, Cora is left with only questions - and dread of what the answers might mean.
When a downward spiral of self-destruction forces Cora to work with an AI counselor, she finds an unexpected ally, even as others around her grow increasingly convinced that Hannah's death was no accident. As Cora's dark past swirls chaotically with the versions of Hannah's life and death that her family and friends want to believe, Cora discovers the disturbing depths of what some people may do - including herself.
With her very sanity in question, Cora is forced to face her greatest fear. She will live or die by what she discovers.

Well, it was free with KU...
Like romance novels have rules (happily ever after) and tropes, it seems more and more books (particularly by white authors) are following rules. If aliens landed and surveyed our books from the past few years, they'd determine that people on the Autism scale were as common as grass. It's getting really old and boring. Sometimes I like to read about something I'm familiar with on a personal level but enough is enough.
Next: Must have diversity so insert person of color. In this case it's the best friend, Netta, who wears a hijab. But that's it. She could have been any color or religion. Even the artificial intelligence guy, Rafiq, is a POC, but obviously there's no particular "cultural" background there.
As for questions surrounding artificial beings and how "human" are they, I'd suggest Cassandra Rose Clark's The Mad Scientist's Daughter, which was written for an adult audience and did not plod along like this book did--despite there being a mystery in this one.

I just didn’t like any of the characters at all. The best friend was good but such a tiny part of the story. I listened to the book not read. I’m sure the Narrator read it as directed but there was just way too much anxiety and angst in her voice all the time. I was barely 2 hours in and I was checking the time to see how much was left of the book because I didn’t think I was going to be able to listen anymore. The end redeemed it a bit. I never would have been able to finish if I was reading. Some of the futuristic technology was fun though.
