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.

I haven't read many (in fact, I don't think I've read any) YA books about robots or artificial intelligence, but I've been wanting to for a while now, and this sounds absolutely awesome. But I'm just a bit wary by two things in the synopsis: "Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila..." I read I Am Number Four before I actually started reading YA, and I liked it (three stars), but reading the reviews I doubt I'd like it now if I were to reread it, so that has me a bit scared, and also: "and a cliffhanger ending that will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel." *sarcastic hooray* But, despite that, I have high hopes for this and am eagerly awaiting it! Now if only Debra Driza could have a contact page on her website so I can request an ARC... 

What are you waiting on?
