Debra Driza is a member of the teen lit blogging group the Bookanistas and a former practising physical therapist, who discovered tormenting her characters was infinitely more enjoyable. These days you can find her at home in California, adding random colours to her hair and wrangling one husband, two kids, and an assortment of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Mila 2.0 is her first novel.

To be honest, I went into this book half-afraid. I had huge expectations from Mila 2.0, but I didn't really like the prequel novella. I'm glad to report, my expectations were met, in some aspects also exceeded.
Mila is an android that more than one group of evil guys would love to get their hands on. But Mila is more than just a cutting-edge piece of technology; there is more humanity in her than her creators could ever assume. The chase starts around chapters two or three, with barely a moment's respite for the rest of the book. Debra Driza doesn't shy away from the painful, the ugly and the tragic, and I think that might be my favorite part of the book. Also, the novel moves at a great pace and there's a nice rhythm to the writing. The android and the human parts of Mila mesh well; she might desperately wish to forget that she has wires and tubes running through her body, but when circumstances demand, she learns how to utilize her android gigs to protect the ones she loves.
On the cons side, there was a point where I started feeling that Mila was getting whiny. The whole ordeal with Hunter was also weird; he is a nice guy, but the sort of guy that I instantly assumed had something to hide. And despite his niceness, I don't think the short encounters between Mila and Hunter warrant that sort of trust. Too strong, too fast, almost insta-love, and as always I have my reservations about that.
If you are looking for a kick-butt action-packed YA novel, you cannot afford to miss Mila 2.0.
