Grade 8+

Mila has a lot to deal with: after her father died in a fire, her mother moved them to a small town in the middle of nowhere. She is trying to adjust to a new school and new friends, but just when she connects to the cute new guy, everything changes.

Mila discovers the biggest secret about herself, one that she wasn’t supposed to know: she isn’t really a girl at all but a very advanced android programmed to do things real people could never do. The woman she thought was her mother is one of the scientists who created her and she stole her from the secret military compound. The government wants her back to terminate her and a mysterious group wants to capture her and unlock her advanced technology - and they just found her hiding place. Now Mila has no choice but to run.  

While her world is crashing down around her, the suppressed android functions are coming out and she has to find out what it really means to be human.
