Mira is focused on her future–with her lacrosse coach’s suggestions, she plans to focus on her sport and let go of her band, Electric Storm. She promises to do one last gig, but there is a horrific accident on the way, which results in Mira becoming a double amputee. Strangely enough, fortune looks down on her as she is just the candidate the doctors want to test out some new prosthetic technology. The changes the technology brings help her to become stronger than she’s ever been, but she can’t tell if the changes in her emotional state are a side effect of the chip in her brain or the trauma of the accident. She hopes she can have both the upgrades from the technology and the soaring emotions of love, hope, and even frustration and anger, but some side effects may not be worth the gain. Weyn’s story starts off similar to The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen but quickly veers off into science fiction and unheard-of technologies. There are some parts of the story that seem forgotten–where’s her dad and what’s with the psychic?–but the overall tale is a quick read, well worth the time spent.
