REVIEW: Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza

Summary from Goodreads:
Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.

Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past—that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.

Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.

Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity-style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel.


Debra Driza very quickly had be in her grasp and didn’t let me go until the very end. There wasn’t a single point in the book when I began to feel bored. It was such a compelling and unique story with characters that I adored and just couldn’t get enough of.

What I really loved about this book was that, eventhough there is a love interest, it didn’t consume the plot. There was just enough to keep us satisfied but not so much that it compromised the plot. The story was strong and flowed flawlessly throughout the entire book.

Mila’s story had me captivated from the very beginning. She was such a wonderful and compelling character that you couldn’t help but love. At times I wanted to shake her and hug her all at the same time. She was one of those character that you really didn’t want anything bad to happen to. You want to put her in your pocket and protect her from all harm. That’s not to say that she is weak. She is one of the strongest characters that I have read. In simple terms; I love her.

Debra Driza did an excellent job here. It was a refreshing plot with excellently developed characters. Go read it right now!
