Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring '13 Kids List
“Mila is a teenage girl mourning the death of her father, at odds with her overly protective mother about gaining more independence, noticing boys, and hanging out with her friends. She is just a normal kid, until she finds out she is anything but normal. Instead, she was built in a laboratory and every memory she possesses is false. With knowledge comes danger, and the evil scientist who runs the lab and has the resources of the U.S. government at his disposal is eager to recapture Mila and terminate her. Mila is in a desperate run for her life, without knowing the rules or whom she can trust. Compulsively readable!”
-- Deon Stonehouse, Sunriver Books, Sunriver, OR


Mila was living with her mother in a small Minnesota town when she discovered she was also living a lie.

She was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was never supposed to remember the past—that she was built in a computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.

Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much, and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology.

Evading her enemies won't help Mila escape the cruel reality of what she is and cope with everything she has had to leave behind. However, what she's becoming is beyond anyone's imagination, including her own, and that just might save her life.

A compulsively readable sci-fi thriller, Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza's bold debut and the first book in an action-filled, Bourne Identity–style trilogy.
