This book was pretty intense for a short as it is! I mean, how awful would that be, to wake up to fire and smoke? Then to escape, only to realize your parents are still inside the burning building? I can't even imagine that kind of terror. It makes my lungs seize up just to think about it. And I'm really curious about the ending. [spoiler]Does she know she's an android? Do her parents know? Was it an experiment or something??[/spoiler]

I actually think I've read this before, but it's been so long it was like reading it for the first time again.

Overall, I'm not really sure why this was a novella and not an actual prologue. I feel like maybe this should be integrated into the actual story. I read this first, since it's a prequel, so I'm not sure if this will impact my thoughts/feelings of Mila 2.0 at all. But it was still pretty good for being so short!

Off to read Mila!
