This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
My name is Tegan Oglietti, and on the last day of my first lifetime, I was so, so happy.
Sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl living in 2027--she's happiest when playing the guitar, she's falling in love for the first time, and she's joining her friends to protest the wrongs of the world: environmental collapse, social discrimination, and political injustice.
But on what should have been the best day of Tegan's life, she dies--and wakes up a hundred years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened.
Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryonically frozen and successfully revived, which makes her an instant celebrity--even though all she wants to do is try to rebuild some semblance of a normal life. But the future isn't all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better future?
Award-winning author Karen Healey has created a haunting, cautionary tale of an inspiring protagonist living in a not-so-distant future that could easily be our own.

I wish I could give this book more than three stars. I would actually give it 3.5 stars to be honest. There's a lot of good world building in here and then there's places where it really slows down and loses momentum - such as at the school. Tegan spends less than a week in school and it just drags. I would have liked to seen more interactions between characters. I did like the connection between Tegan and Abdi. I will probably read the next book in the series when I have the money to buy it. It's out of my price range right now.
Really! Children's Fiction!
The book was good the story line was good! But before you go and put the book in children's fiction you probably should read it first!!!! This book has many swear words! It also contains the F word! I would not recommend this book! I like a lot of things about the book but I don't like plenty more things!!!
