Reboot, by Amy Tintera, was an exciting dystopian novel.
Wren Connolly was 12 when she was shot three times in the chest. She was dead for 178 minutes before she came back as a “Reboot.”
At 17 years old, Wren has a reputation. Her number – 178 – identifies her as the “deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas,” because she is “less human” than the Reboots who were dead for a shorter period of time.
In the beginning of the book, the reader can tell that Wren is completely accepting of her situation. It doesn’t seem to bother her that she is used to capture, and sometimes kill, humans. I think Wren’s growth as a character was interesting because she needed to discover that she shouldn’t be defined by her number.
Of course, she was only able to find herself with the help of Callum Reyes, a newbie Wren decided to train. In every respect, Callum and Wren are opposites, but they form a bond which gives Wren new perspective on life. This is why I liked Callum: when everyone believed Wren was nothing but an empty shell, he knew it wasn’t true and refused to treat her like everyone else.
The book was fast-paced and interesting. I look forward to reading Book 2. 🙂
