Waiting on Wednesday

Reboot by Amy Tintera
(HarperTeen/May 7, 2013)
 
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.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.
 
Sounds like a really good read!  Although the bit about "the longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return" sounds a lot like the concept Daniel Water's had in his Generation Dead series, except with zombies.  Although there doesn't seem to be many more similarities between the two beyond that seeing that we're talking deadly soldiers here in Reboot
 
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

I have this one on one of my previous WOW posts and I'm really excited about the book. I really can't wait for it to come out so we can meet Wren 178. Great pick and I hope you enjoy reading it.

I haven't heard of this one before but it sounds interesting. I like the idea of a female MC in charge of training!
