Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza: 4 of 5 STARS YA Review

Mila 2.0 (Mila 2.0 #1) by Debra Driza. 2013. Katherine Tegen Books. Goodreads.

Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.

Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past—that she was built in a secret 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. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.

Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity-style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel.


This book was read before my Brain Tumor surgery in August 2014. I should have posted a review before surgery, but life was hectic.

Mila 2.0 was a fun read by a great new author, Debra Driza. I definitely recommend it to all you YA readers.

Mila was a fun character! I loved the beginning with her a normal teenager going to school. She was the new girl trying to make friends. I don’t want to get into the amazingly cool things that happened, but just know that if you like teen fiction with some action you’ll like this one.

It was great getting to know Mila when she thought she was a regular human girl. There was a guy named Hunter who was also fun getting to know. The only thing that started to annoy me was her constant surprise of what she found out about herself. I guess that only annoyed me because I’m the opposite. The story really was great.

I look forward to reading book 2! Mila 2.0 was full of normal high school days then wild days on the run!
