This YA science fiction thriller is a blast.

In a dystopian future, Sil Sarrah is an 18-yr-old agent for the Syntex Corporation. Her brain has been engineered so she can piggyback on other agents’ minds and lead them to safety without ever leaving the building she is housed in.

Only problem is, Mindwalkers never live far beyond 18 – eventually the CPUs planted in their brain burn up, taking their host with them. Then another problem crops up. Someone she helps accuses her of accessing his mind afterwards without consent.

Sil finds herself framed as a spy and has no choice but to flee. Hiding from the Corporation, she’s desperate to prove she isn’t a trailer, but then she finds some unsettling information that might just prove everything she’s been working for is a lie…

So yes, this is a rollercoaster ride of a page-turner, cliches doubled down on and intended. If you like sci-fi thrillers, this is one for you. If you don’t, don’t even try. Unless you like YA fiction in which case it might work for you anyway.
