Quatrième de couverture - Book Description :
Donate Body to Science. Check.
When seventeen-year-old Kaitlyn checked the box, she never suspected she’d have her life–and her body–stolen from her. She awakens one day in a secret laboratory to discover that her body is now half-robot and is forced to hide her own secret: that she still has human emotions and a human mind. If the scientists who made her find out, they’ll erase what remains of who she was.
Kaitlyn finds an unlikely ally in Lucas, a handsome, brilliant scientist who can’t get over the guilt he feels knowing she was once a vibrant, beautiful young woman. He never expected a science project to affect him the way she does. As he tries to help her rediscover her past, he finds himself falling for the brave girl struggling to find her place and acceptance between the human and computer worlds.

Mon avis - My opinion :
I heard about that book by Allison Potter the PA of the author Julia Crane. The first thing that caught my eye was the book cover. It is very beautiful. I bought the book on Kobo and start reading it immediately. I was caught very fast by the story. I found the main idea of the story very original and it was refreshing. By this time, in the young adult world, we mostly read story about paranormals, like vampires, werewolves etc.. but not in this book.
This book is book one of the IFICS serie which will be some kind of trilogy I assume (not sure about this). I can already predict that this will be a very good serie. Can't wait to see what's next.

Auteure - Author :
Julia crane is the author of the Coexist: Keegan’s Chronicles. She has a bachelors degree in criminal justice. Julia has believed in magical creatures since the day her grandmother first told her an Irish tale. Growing up her mother greatly encouraged reading and using your imagination. Although she’s spent most of her life on the US east coast, she currently lives in Dubai with her husband and three children.
That's the first book that I read from that author but it will certainly not be the last one. I am curious about that series Keegan's Chronicles and I will read the next books in the IFICS serie for sure. Her writing is easy to read for a French reading English like me. She makes short paragraphs which I really like and something cute in that book was the little robot at the end of each chapters.
Finally, I really recommend that book and I wouldn't be surprise to see movie based on that story in a couple of years.
