Booktalk #1

The KDH virus is fatal to all, but the young and strong can come back at Reboots -- strong, deadly and not quite human. Wren 178 was dead for a record 178 minutes making her the strongest of the Reboots and giving her first pick of the new Reboots she trains.  Something draws her to Callum 22, despite his near-human nature.  But when his kindness results in an execution order for him, will Wren risk it all to save him?  (Isinglass Teen Award Committee, 2015)

Booktalk #2

Wren is a reboot.  She was dead for one hundred seventy eight minutes before she rebooted.  She is now part of an elite military group.  Reboots are used by the humans to capture and kill on command.  Wren has been at this for 5 years and she hasn't really questioned her life.  When her roommate loses it and attacks her, she is horrified to learn that the humans are experimenting on the under 60s.  And then Wren chooses Callum to train.  He has only rebooted two weeks before and he was only dead for twenty two minutes.  Why is Wren suddenly having feelings for others?  And questioning her life as a soldier.
