False Memory by Dan Krokos
Miranda wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except Peter, a boy who isn’t at all surprised by Miranda’s shocking ability. Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn’t easy—especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can’t remember loving.
Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn’t seem to matter…when there may not be a future.
Dan Krokos’ debut is a tour-de-force of non-stop action that will leave readers begging for the next book in this bold and powerful new series.
Mom Says: This was actually a very good read! I have passed it on to Tripp (13) who really loves all the Sci Fi stuff and he is also enjoying it.

Mom Says: OH. EM. GEE! This is the greatest thing since sliced bread. LOL! OK, not totally the greatest since sliced bread… I seriously love me some PB&J, but it is pretty awesome. How many times have you had to pass your phone to your little one so thy can play on it? Then, you get a call or a text and THEY get mad because you need it back? The DS just isn’t as fun as the phone. Well, you no longer have to worry about it! Now, my kids can play Bad Piggies and I can still have my phone. Woot!
