Excellent book, better than the first one. Sixteen year old Locke has awakened in a new stronger, taller body that looks just like the one he had before his fatal car accident, 260 years ago. His mind has been implanted in it, a mind that had to endure two centuries inside a small box, with only the mind-voice of his best friend Kara for company. Now he and Kara are free again, on the run from the doctor who wants to use them as "floor models," to convince others to buy (illegal) immortal bodies for themselves. Their only hope is Jenna, the other part of their friends trio, who got her new body right after their accident and has been living her life without them--for 260 years! How will she tract when she sees them? How will Kata and Locke feel when they see her? Will they be able to cope in this strange new future world? What does existing without a body for two centuries do to a person's personality?

Very cool book, with great characters, fast and suspenseful action, and a science fiction premise that makes you think. And you don't have to have read the first book to enjoy this one, which is nice; but if you have read The Adoration of Jenna Fox you can appreciate the new angles this story takes, and getting to know two characters who were not the focus of the first book. I hope there will be a third book!
