TEEN: Crashed - Robin Wasserman


Before the accident, Lia Kahn was happy. Before the accident, Lia Kahn was loved. Lia was a lot of things before...She was normal, alive...and human. But Lia no longer believes in before. Six months after the crash that killed her, six months after being reborn, Lia has finally accepted her new reality. She is a machine, a mech, and she belongs with her own kind. It's a wild and carefree life, without rules and without fear. Because there's nothing to fear when you have nothing left to lose. But when a voice from her past cries out for revenge, everything changes and Lia is forced to choose between her old life and her new one. How many people - mechs and human - is Lia willing to hurt to protect her freedom? And how far is she willing to go to protect the people she loves? In the tradition of Scott Westerfeld comes the second book in this riveting and edgy science fiction novel which raises questions of mortality, technology and morality.


I loved the original offering by Rachel as it was not only wonderfully written but very though provoking. As such it made this sequel a must own. The prose are delightful, the dialogue snappy but above all she is an author who knows how to not only hook the reader but keep them engrossed until the final page is turned. A great offering and one that really does make Rachel’s writing something that will from now on end up at the top of my Young Adult reading pile.
