Review: Skinned

Skinned (Skinned, #1)Skinned by Robin Wasserman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Where was this series when I was on the bout of Ugly (Scott Westerfeld) madness last year?
Do you like teens, machines, living forever? Then Robin Wasserman's series has it all for you.
The thought behind this book is somewhat along the lines of: in the futuristic reality where immortality is a machine away, are you really choosing that future? or is someone doing it for you?
One day after and accident Lia was mentally transferred to a new body. With it comes a whole host of problems, loss of friends, family, society, and an influx of Lifers- mech hating religious zealots.
The book moves through loss, denial, anger, revelation, and strengths portraying a youth who lost her choices, was forced into immortality and the life she left that basically does not want her anymore. What will happen? Where will she go? Now what?
When you are forced to loose everything, what do you have left?

I loved this book, I cannot wait to pick up the next two books and see what happens.
