Everything Sad is Untrue
Imagine waking up 100 years from now; the boy you loved has had an entire life without you and has died, your parents are long gone, the house you grew up in probably doesn't even exist anymore, the language and slang of your youth has become old school, and everything you do feels unfamiliar. That's the existence Tegan Oglietti starts to live when she is brought back to life in 2027, 100 years after she died. She finds out that she has signed away any rights she thought she had, and she is the property of the government. Worse then that, they clearly have a plan for her, and it is not something she wants for herself. Tegan finds friends and romance where she doesn't expect it, but also finds out that what she was told was her purpose is not really the truth. Tegan is one of those take no prisoner kind of girls, and you'll be cheering for her throughout the entire tale.

I love a good mystery, and although I correctly guessed the murderer in the first chapter, I still thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns.
