Description-

  • In this fast-paced dystopian thrill ride, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, Legend, and Divergent, a seventeen-year-old girl returns from death as a Reboot and is trained as an elite crime-fighting soldier . . . until she is given an order she refuses to obey.

    Wren Connolly died five years ago, only to Reboot after 178 minutes. Now she is one of the deadliest Reboots around . . . unlike her newest trainee, Callum 22, who is practically still human. As Wren tries to teach Callum how to be a soldier, his hopeful smile works its way past her defenses. Unfortunately, Callum's big heart also makes him a liability, and Wren is ordered to eliminate him. To save Callum, Wren will have to risk it all.

    Wren's captivating voice and unlikely romance with Callum will keep readers glued to the page in Amy Tintera's high-stakes alternate reality.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books xxpish - In Amy Tintera’s debut novel Reboot, Wren Conolly is a reboot—a human who died and came back to life, and is now faster, stronger and heals quicker. Reboots live in a building of the Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation (HARC). She is a soldier, and along with that, the strongest reboot in the Republic of Texas. After she was shot in the chest three times and killed, she returned as a reboot in 178 minutes. Other reboots have lower reboot numbers, like 72, or 124. The higher the number, the more deadly you are. Enter Callum Reyes, one of the lowest of the low—a 22. When he arrives at the HARC building, he meets Wren, who sees something in him. On selection day she chooses him, even though she is known for choosing reboots with the highest numbers. When Callum is forced to make a choice to go on a real-life mission or be killed because of his low performance, Wren knows she has to help him. She makes an escape plan, to go to the rumored Reboot Reservation Camp run by rebels to escape HARC. In a thrilling, action-packed dystopian debut, Amy Tintera creates a story that is sure to leave readers wanting more. This book was incredible. The story was so full of action, suspense and awesomeness that it was hard to put down. The world that the author created is amazing. This was definitely one of the best dystopians I have ever read. The idea is very unique and cool—people dying and then coming back to life again, as a zombie-like, more advanced human. Tintera describes the setting really well, and Wren and Callum were well written. I cannot wait for the sequel, Rebel, the final book in the duology, as well as more books by Amy Tintera. Readers can get Reboot from Amazon for $13.58 in hardcover, and $8.99 in paperback. Barnes and Noble’s website lists the book for $13.56 in hardcover, and $9.99 in paperback. Readers can also purchase Reboot in-store from Barnes and Noble and BookPeople for the list price of $17.99. The sequel, “Rebel,” comes out on May 13.

    Tintera's debut covers familiar dystopian territory, but a riveting premise, a romance with substance, and the urgent narrative voice lend it a burst of fresh energy. When Wren was shot in a Texas slum at age 12, the virus she'd been infected with caused her to "Reboot" after 178 minutes. Reboots who have been dead as long as Wren come back strong and often emotionless, and are the best hunters and killers for the government (who offer them no rights or freedoms). When Wren, now 17, begins training Callum, who'd only been dead for 22 minutes, he challenges her beliefs in the rigid order of their society, as well as her own lack of emotion. And when Wren discovers that the weaker Reboots—including Callum and Wren's roommate Ever—are being experimented on, it sets off a desire to escape and to fight the system she's worked for since dying. Tintera occasionally rushes character development—Wren's conversion from borderline sociopath into caring human, in particular—but strong world-building and sweeping action sequences should exert a strong hold on readers. Ages 13–up. Agent: Emmanuelle Morgan, Stonesong.
