Overview

Debra Driza's MILA 2.0 is the first book in a gripping Bourne Identity–style trilogy about a girl who discovers she is actually an android.

Mila was never supposed to remember her past, or know what lurked beneath her synthetic skin. She was never meant to learn that she was "born" in a secret computer science lab and programmed with superhuman skills. But when a group of hooded men show up on her doorstep, hoping to strip her of her advanced technology, she has no choice but to run for her life. In every direction there are dangerous people, hunting her down. They will do whatever it takes to capture Mila, including hurting the people she cares about most.

Filled with secrets, action, and even romance, MILA 2.0 is perfect for readers who love sci-fi thrillers like the Partials series and I Am Number Four.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—Thirty days ago, Mila's mother moved them to the quiet Clearwater, Minnesota, to make a new start after the tragic death of her husband. Despite her grief, Mila is doing her best to find a place for herself, but it's hard to move on when she can't remember details of her past-including the fire that killed her father. When she injures her arm in an accident, she discovers a network of wires and tubes beneath her skin that hints at a history more incredible than she could have ever imagined. Mila doesn't remember her previous life because she doesn't have a past: she was created in a top-secret laboratory for the government. Now she and her mother are running for their lives and nothing makes sense-all she has are questions. Who is her mother? Did her father ever actually exist? Why was she created? And who is chasing her? In this cross between Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity (Richard Marek, 1980) and Mary E. Pearson's The Adoration of Jenna Fox (Holt, 2008), Mila's identity crisis and the resulting questions about what it means to be human could be the start of an interesting discussion. And while this first book in a planned trilogy is nearly 500 pages long, the action-packed plot will quickly propel even reluctant readers to the end.—Heather M. Campbell, formerly at Philip S. Miller Library, Castle Rock, CO
Marissa Meyer
“One part teen love story and two parts super-spy thriller, MILA 2.0 raises plenty of questions of humanity, warfare, and artificial intelligence, but it’s the James Bond-esque suspense and formidable heroine that kept me enthralled to the last page.”
ALA Booklist
“Driza’s fast-paced, action-packed debut science fiction thriller about identity, will, artificial intelligence, nature versus nurture, and man versus machine would satisfy fans of the Jason Bourne series, the Hunger Games trilogy, and Jennifer Rush’s Altered.”
Romantic Times
“MILA 2.0 is wonderful, filled with action and drama, a strong female protagonist and intense supporting characters. Readers will be hooked from the first page.”
Deseret News
“A must-read. Driza enumerates with intriguing clarity the human-versus-android tension that survives within Mila, all the while delivering an electrifying plot.”
New York Journal of Books
“Driza writes a story full of drama, excitement, and sadness with a smooth and complete story arc that nonetheless leaves us eagerly awaiting the next installment.”
Kathleen Peacock
“With edge-of-your-seat action and a shadowy government headquarters that puts Hollywood to shame, MILA 2.0 is a delicious, fast-paced read.”
Jen at Makeshift Bookmark
“Action-packed? Absolutely. Tear-jerking? Oh, yes. Lack of boring spells? You bet. Don’t brush this one off as just a pretty girl on a cover. There’s depth to MILA 2.0 and I can’t wait to find out where Debra Driza takes this story.”
Ashley at Booknook Young Adult Book Reviews
“MILA 2.0 was everything I hoped it would be: intense, action-packed, and filled with awesome technology…I promise you that MILA 2.0 is pure Bourne Identity and it’s FREAKING AWESOME.”
