Skinned

Skinned (Cold Awakening, #1)Skinned by Robin Wasserman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I finally got through this novel. I purchased this book when in 2008 and it took this long finally get a book on tape to help me through the novel. I really like the concept of the book! The way this girl is a machine is very inspiring and a different twist to the average robot/cyborg story. The problem that I had with the novel is that I really didn’t like the main character. Her voice irritated me, which is the reason I couldn’t finish the book on my own. I think that the character was well rounded and extremely consistent, I just didn’t like her. I’ve never been one of those popular girl want-to-bes so I had a hard time empathizing with what she wanted, I could only empathize with the thought of suddenly not having the body you should have. The ending was a little anti-climactic, but I kind of liked that. I liked the fact that the heroine didn’t really see herself as a heroine, but s girl trying to move on with her life. That was cool. I have mixed feelings about finishing the series. Maybe in another 4 years.
