Reboot - by Amy Tintera
This is an exciting, creative dystopian thriller, along the lines of Divergent, The Hunger Games, and Legend. It is unique in its use of zombies (reboots), but it shares a strong female lead, lots of action, a realization and then fight back against the ruling regime, and characters who learn to care more about their similarities than their differences. There's plenty of violence, but also more tender, thoughtful moments than you would expect.
The pace is fast, the world is interesting, and it's a good book. In this genre, this book is around the middle of the pack, which is not bad, as there are some amazing science-fiction/fantasty teen stories being published these days. Check this book out, but be prepared to fall in love with a 5-years-dead murderous teen girl.
