Reboot by Amy Tintera review


Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

Massive thank you to my friend Natalie for sending me this awesome book! It's been a while since I did any review (Annmarie) so I'm gonna try and get back into the swing of things and tell you what I think of reboot. When reading the description i had the thought that the book was about teens coming back as machines no idea why but my brain seem to move along thoses lines but i was wrong the book Is about people coming back from the dead as reboots (think zombies but with more self control also being faster and stronger and smarter). The book follows Wren as a reboot she is much the outsider thanks to being dead 178 minuted before coming back which is a long time for any reboots she come's across as hard and cut off from others and as a reader you watch her bloom and change as a character. I enjoyed the fact the story was not rushed and you have time to get to know everyone and understand what's going on. I loved how everything was thought out and put together the book fall of action and shocked and all together a really good book over all. 

I would give the book a solid 4 stars out of 5
