Book Summary

Mira plays lacrosse, and she's good enough that she has a chance at a college scholarship. She and her friends are working hard to make a success of their band. After an accident, a prosthetic implant and an experimental chip in her brain, Mira first wonders whether she’ll ever be as good an athlete and musician as she once was, and then she starts to wonder if she’s too good – does her bionic nature take some of her humanity?
