Mila 2.0

3 Stars/5

Thanks to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK, Children’s for giving this book to review.

Mila and her mother have moved to a small town after a fire that killed her father, but she can only remember bits and pieces of her past, then she meets Hunter who helps her deal with the death of her father. However, after an accident, she discovers that she is not human but an android and all her life has been a lie. Now Mila and the woman she has always thought of as her mother have to run away from the people who made her and want to rewrite her or kill her because she is too human.

Mila 2.0 is a likable YA sci-fi thriller about a girl who is a machine with feelings, it has a fairly slow first half but makes up for it in the second as it is action-packed.

The characters are the weakest part of this book as I found hard to connect to them, especially the secondary characters, as they seemed to be only in the book to help the story but not as real people. The romance is also not the best as Mila is thinking about Hunter way too much considering they only meet a few times, although I think Hunter is meant to represent her human side.

 Mila 2.0 is a nice but predictable and I would recommend this to people who like Crewel or The Darkest Minds.
