Not a huge fan of this one. Tegan Oglietta is the living dead girl. She was shot but then we-awoken many years later because she "donated her body to science." It just seemed cheesy and not a whole lot happened. I didn't get to fall in love with the characters. We learned more about science and politics and religions than anything. So I suppose, if that's you're thing you'll enjoy this book. I, for one, don't plan on reading the sequel.
