Reboot (Reboot #1)

Looking for a fast-paced, thrilling ride of a read?   If so, Amy Tintera's Reboot should be your next read!  I know, I know...Zombies?  But wait, not really!  Only if the Zombies of your mind are realistic, teenage, self-healing, lethal soldiers who have so many more dimensions than what you imagine.  That, partnered with exhilarating fight scenes, witty and lovable characters and an evil corporation that is not all it seems; creates this one of a kind novels not to be missed!

Summary Courtesy of Goodreads
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 seventeen 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 is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. 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 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.
Tintera does a surprisingly awesome job creating a very believable world for Wren and Callum that gives you a front row seat into the action from page one.  She has a visually descriptive way with words that builds this beautifully horrific world and within that world grows something that seems nearly impossible to find, but against all odds, our main characters stumble into each other's lives (or non-lives) and set course for an exhilarating ride!

I absolutely cannot wait for the next in this exciting series!  A great addition for YA Readers everywhere!
