Freak of Nature
By: Julia Crane
Blurb: Donate Body to Science. Check.
When seventeen-year-old Kaitlyn checked the box, she never suspected she’d have her life–and her body–stolen from her. She awakens one day in a secret laboratory to discover that her body is now half-robot and is forced to hide her own secret: that she still has human emotions and a human mind. If the scientists who made her find out, they’ll erase what remains of who she was.
Kaitlyn finds an unlikely ally in Lucas, a handsome, brilliant scientist who can’t get over the guilt he feels knowing she was once a vibrant, beautiful young woman. He never expected a science project to affect him the way she does. As he tries to help her rediscover her past, he finds himself falling for the brave girl struggling to find her place and acceptance between the human and computer worlds.

My View: The moment I set my eyes on that cover, I knew I had to read it. Yes, I am cover crazy like that. Good thing is that the book did not disappoint.
This book had me hooked from the very first page. What got my attention was the really innovative and mind-boggling plot. It sparked an interest in me instantly. I finished reading this book in less than two days as I couldn’t pull myself away from it.
Another brilliant work on the author’s part was the attention to minute details which I heartily applaud. Writing about a non-human, a robot and making sure all the facts you mention collaborate with one another is a huge task and Julia Crane carried it amazingly well on her able shoulders. I have a sharp editing mind and can easily catch such errors in the writing, so to find a lack of it was icing on the cake.
The characters – I especially like the fact that there were less characters (less to keep track of, I have a bad short-term memory. :-p ) and very well etched out.
The story moves at a rapid pace (just how I like it). There’s no lag and no pages that should have gotten rid of.
Overall, a very well-written book that has it all. I strongly recommend it.
