Why I read it: 2nd in a series
In this follow-up to "Skinned," Lia becomes swept up in the idea of being a revolutionary after she joins Jude and his roving gang of mechs. But as plans escalate, she starts having second thoughts. How many people--mechanical and organic--is she willing to hurt to protect her freedom?
This one started off a little slow, but the pace soon picked up, and after that it was pretty action packed. I liked this one better than the first in the series. I felt like there was more to the story than just a girl feeling sorry for herself, surrounded by a bunch of jerks. In this book, she still seemed to be surrounded by a lot of sarcastic, mean people, but she seems to be finding her place.
This book brings up a lot of ethics questions. What does it mean to be human? What makes a person a person? It's interesting to think about, and I like books that make me think about things that I otherwise probably wouldn't even be considering. I would recommend this series.
