Bionic

Written by Suzanne Weyn


After a bad accident Mira loses an arm, a leg, and part of her face. Given unusual prostheses that work with a chip in her brain, Mira learns to do many of things she use to love. Soon, however, she starts to hear whispers like, “unfair advantage,” “robot,” and “cyborg.” Can Mira learn to fit in? Will she be able to enjoy what she loves?

This is an engaging read that makes the reader think. The main character is easy to relate to and sympathize with. Her struggles are realistic and add a fun science fiction feel to the book. Fans of science fiction, coming of age stories, and books dealing with overcoming obstacles will enjoy reading this book.
