Description of this Electronic Book
Who says a cyborg can't fall in love? Jay's a cyborg who looks just like a normal teenage girl. She's super-strong, super-smart, and she can even appear to age like a human. When a covert organization intent on using Jay as a weapon comes after her, she needs to find a place where she can blend in. Greenfield High seems perfect... except the boys all think she's totally hot and keep hitting on her, and she has no clue how to handle the attention. Who knew high school could be so perilous? To add to her confusion Jay's evolving - experiencing human emotions for the first time - and her encounters with ex-jock-turned-outcast Tyler send her logical brain into a spin. She's just starting to get the hang of this girlfriend/boyfriend thing when her pursuers track her down. Now's sooo not the time for a cyborg to fall in love and get all emotional!
Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||"If you liked Terminator you will love this YA book. Freaks of Greenfield High by Maree Anderson is a great YA cross between the Terminator movies and the Sarah Connor TV show. I devoured this book in two nights. It totally played out like a movie in my head. Anderson's descriptions of cyborg Jay were amazing. I especially loved that Jay was a girl, trying to learn how to cope with new situations while learning more about humanity. I loved how Anderson added human angst to Jay who was trying to cope with blending in while playing being human. And Tyler and his twin sister had their own problems but friendships are the underlying theme in this book. It was fast paced, riveting, real teen language that I loved and I didn't want it to end. I seriously hope Anderson will write a sequel featuring more cyborgs. I don't have a rating system but this YA book is a must read." - Nitty Gritty YA Writing
