The future world is at peace.

Ella Shepherd has dedicated her life to using her unique gift—the ability to enter people’s dreams and memories using technology developed by her mother—to help others relive their happy memories.

But not all is at it seems.

Ella starts seeing impossible things—images of her dead father, warnings of who she cannot trust. Her government recruits her to spy on a rebel group, using her ability to experience—and influence—the memories of traitors. But the leader of the rebels claims they used to be in love—even though Ella’s never met him before in her life. Which can only mean one thing…

Someone’s altered her memory.

Ella’s gift is enough to overthrow a corrupt government or crush a growing rebel group. She is the key to stopping a war she didn’t even know was happening. But if someone else has been inside Ella’s head, she cannot trust her own memories, thoughts, or feelings.

So who can she trust?

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 06, 2015 – From the neon city of New Venice, the global capital that emerged after the Secessionary Wars, 18-year-old Ella Shepherd faces the grim reality that the nanobots keeping her mother alive are failing. Knowing that her father, killed in his lab by terrorists, cannot save her, and eager to avenge his death, Ella readily agrees when the Prime Administrator of the United Countries asks her to spy on a suspected terrorist by entering the person's reverie, a dreamlike memory state that she can control. What she finds there offers more questions than answers, suggesting a governmental conspiracy when the androids throughout the city start to self-destruct. Soon Ella joins an underground network led by Jack, a boyfriend she doesn't remember, and the Prime Administrator's true motives are revealed. Short chapters, many of which end with cliffhangers, make for addictive reading, and the reverie-within-reverie sequences are vibrantly rendered games of cat and mouse. Though the descriptions run long in places, Revis (Across the Universe) gives a masterly blend of worlds familiar and new in this standalone SF mystery. Ages 14 up. (BookLife)

Customer Reviews

Fun, fast, and action-packed! Not to be missed!!!

Received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Fun, fast, action-packed! Beth Revis is a master of world-building and truly suspenseful storytelling. It's so nice to Revis really coming into her own as an author. I was a fan of her first series (Across the Universe), but you can see how much her writing has matured. As a reader I felt like I was being taken on a wild journey and had to work with Ella (the protagonist/narrator) to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together. THE BODY ELECTRIC really keeps you on your toes--never a dull moment. LOVED the way it ended. A wonderful standalone novel. The Body Electric is NOT to be missed!
