Teaser Tuesday: Mila 2.0 {12}

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. i'm a little late getting this up, since I forgot to write it last night and have class all day on Tuesdays! BUT, here's my teaser!

Title: Mila 2.0
Author: Debra Driza
Release date: March 12, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Pages: 480
Buy the book: Barnes & Noble | Amazon | The Book Depository
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.
My teaser, from page 284 in the ARC:
My deficiencies, meaning...my emotions? Was this strange, disheveled guy telling me that any show of emotion would be counted against me?

I didn't have long to ponder it, because three seconds later, he uttered his next words:

The first test starts...in five minutes.
That's certainly ominous, yes? If you're just too darn intrigued, you can check out the short prequel that Debra Driza has written, Origins: The Fire, about Mila. It's free from both Barnes & Noble and Amazon! Also, be sure to stop by here on Thursday because I'll be posting my review of Mila 2.0, and there just MIGHT be a giveaway... ;) I'd love to see what everyone is teasing this week, so leave me links! Have a happy Tuesday all!
