Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries.

Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead.

Everyone except Jenna Fox.

Review:

"In Pearson's latest installment in the Jenna Fox Chronicles, following a fatal car crash, the minds of teenage Locke and Kara are recorded and saved as computer data. The two teens are given new life, 260 years later, via biosynthetic bodies that are indistinguishable from living human beings. But as Locke reflects on his old life, remembers his mind's virtual imprisonment, and discovers the marvels and dangers of the future, he begins to suspect that something about the new version of Kara isn't quite right. Matthew Brown narrates with a smooth, mellow voice that is very appropriate for this YA sci-fi novel. His rendition of the distressed Locke is spot on, and he provides equally appropriate voices for the book's various characters: adults, kids, males, female, and even robots. Brown's reading also captures the thoughtful reflection of the author's prose, while still creating excitement and tension when the story hits suspenseful passages. A Holt hardcover."
