Book Review: Freak of Nature by Julia Crane

AUTHOR: Julia CranePUBLISHER: Valknut 
PAGES: 284
STAND ALONE/SERIES: series I think
SOURCE: bought
OUTLINE:

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

MY THOUGHTS
A cyborg falling in love with a human...sort of a far-fetched idea huh? Ok, yes it is, but Julia Crane did it so well that it works for me.

Kaitlyn does a good job acting as if she is only a robot and nothing else, but the truth is she's more human than they think. She has a mind and emotions, and they're telling her that lucas is hot and that she could be meant for so much more then whatever the goverment has in store for her. I truly enjoyed the way this story unfolded. At times I just wanted Kaitlyn to tell everyone that she was more than she appeared to be, more than just wires and metal.

I felt sort of bad for her being stuck in a room with just a tv and nothing more, white walls, it sounds to me like a psyhc ward. (Not that I would know what that is like) I was glad that she had one person who gave her the time of day, even if the person is a child.

  1. Great review, this one sounds cute. Have you read Cinder? Its sounds slightly like this, but it is a fairy tale re-telling.
