Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—The cliff-hanger ending of Reboot (HarperCollins, 2013) almost guaranteed that readers would be treated to a continuation of the story of Wren 178 and Callum 22. In the first book, readers discovered that a horrific virus known as KDH caused some people to rise from the dead—but only those who are young and strong. They are known as Reboots, and they have been trained and used by HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation) as soldiers against a devastated civilian population in the name of national security. As this book opens, several Reboots, led by Wren and Callum, have escaped their HARC enclosure in search of free Reboots, reported to be hiding in the north, in the hopes of joining them and successfully overthrowing HARC. Unfortunately, they are unaware that their mission will take them into even greater danger at the hands of those who should have been their allies. Action-packed scenes, graphic violence, and a developing love story between the lead characters in a postapocalyptic world will appeal to teens who appreciate the genre made popular by Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games.—Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK

From Booklist

Wren and Callum have escaped from HARC, which uses children risen from the dead—aka “reboots”—to police a postapocalyptic Texas. But the Reboot Reservation is a place of secrets, and they must choose between freedom and fighting for the lives of both reboots and humans. This is the rare sequel, after Reboot (2013), that is better than the original, as Wren’s emotionlessness and Callum’s pacifism occasionally put them at odds, despite their feelings for each other. The dual narration lets readers into the characters’ heads, while plenty of action keeps the story moving, and a solid ending ties up most loose ends. Grades 8-11. --Snow Wildsmith

More About the Author

Hi! I'm Amy Tintera, and I write novels for young adults. I grew up in Austin, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in journalism. After receiving a masters in film at Emerson College I moved to Los Angeles, where I promptly discovered I didn't enjoy working in the film industry, and went back to my first love, writing.

My debut, REBOOT, is out now from HarperCollins/HarperTeen, with the sequel to follow in 2014. Film rights have been optioned by Fox 2000. I am represented by Emmanuelle Morgen at Stonesong.

Phew...What an thrilling ride in REBEL! Amy Tintera has done it again, and she has manged to surpass REBOOT on so many levels! And that's hard to imagine, as much as I LOVEDDDDDD REBOOT when I read it last year! I can happily say, REBEL has come out on top in the duology, and become one of my favorites for 2014!

In REBEL we had so much growth in the main character Wren. In the first book REBOOT, Wren was a cold blooded killer. Really, she killed without question and without remorse. But it's totally understandable why and how Wren was able to be so cold in REBOOT. But in REBEL, Callum, the other main character in REBEL and also Wren's love interest, has succeed in melting the ice around Wren's heart, and allowed her to feel again. And in REBEL she doesn't have as many feelings as humans do or even as some of the lesser number Reboots do, but they were definitely there. And it was nice to see a more compassionate Wren, but still have this hard-edged, strong, take no crap type of gal. And in both books Wren was awesome, but I think I liked her a little it more in REBEL as she showed some feelings!


REBEL picks up right where REBOOT left off. Wren & Addie has succeed in saving Callum from becoming a flesh craving monster that he was becoming in the first book, REBOOT! And in the process they've manged to save all the Reboots in the Austin HARC facility. This is where REBEL picks back up!

They've made it! They're finally free from the clutches of the power-hungry HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation.) And have well over 100 Reboots with them all looking to Wren for direction on which way to go and what to do next! They've heard talk about a Reboot Reservation, and are relieved when they arrive to find it true!

I thought the first book was pretty good. Unique plot and quite a bit of action. Second book I just could NOT finish. There is just not enough action. The plot stalls out pretty fast once they get to a certain point on where they are headed. And the romance takes over completely over everything else in this book. In my opinion it is the main topic between Wren and Callum and not much else is going on. I listened to the audio and just had to turn it off with just a few chapters to go. I couldn't stomach anymore and I didn't care how it ended by then. Wren was tough in the first book and in Rebel, she is just looking for her next kiss and to hold his hand. If you want to read the next book in the series, you should consider getting this from the library (sorry Amazon) - because I don't think this one to re-read over and over.

Format: Paperback
This picked up exactly where Reboot ended. Wren and Callum lead a group of Austin reboots into the Reboot reservation north of Austin. They expected a peaceful life now that they are away from HARC. However, the reboots in the reservation had different ideas. Led by Micah, the reboots in the reservation plans to attack humans for their enslavement of the reboots.

While I admired Wren’s decisiveness in the first book, she was different in this one. There were a lot more internal conflicts within Wren. She didn’t want to help the reboots attack humans. All she wanted was to live away from humans with Callum peacefully. However, her situation, and her reboot number, basically makes that impossible. I liked that Wren didn’t immediately jump into the fray. She wasn’t for either camp, attacking or helping. The author also made Wren’s hesitations believable. She didn’t have a great human life, so she didn’t like humans, but she knew killing innocents was wrong. While I liked Wren’s reservation, it dragged down the book’s pacing at times.

This book also had sections told in Callum’s point of view. I’m glad to see that Callum became useful in this one, and not just shown as weak as in the previous book. He really grew up in this one. Unlike Wren, Callum couldn’t just stand around and do nothing while knowing that Micah and the reboots plan to attack Austin. He acted on what he believed was right, and took the leadership role. Also, it was interesting to see him interact with Wren. There were just so many things he hadn’t known about Wren. After he learned more things about Wren’s life, he became more understanding and empathic toward Wrens’ feelings, and I really liked that about him.

Overall, this is a great ending to the two-book series. Tintera’s writing was fast and on point and the story easily flowed from one section to another. The characters were likeable and relatable. I look forward to reading more from Tintera in the future.

I hate when this happens. I really do. I absolutely love a book and then I read the next book int he series and I don’t love it. I could go on and on about it, but for now I’ll talk about Rebel.

Rebel really let me down. My major issue with this book is that it really bored me. I just wasn’t interested in what was going on anymore. Even when huge things happened, I was just like “Oh, well”. This was pretty much due to my lack of interest in what was going on with the characters. I was on the edge on my seat with the first book, but with this one things slowed down a bit and we saw Wren and Callum as they dealt with everything that had happened in the first book. Sure there was action, but it never really drew me in like it did with the first book.

What I did like was the fact that Callum really came into his own in this book. Every other chapter is told from Callum’s point of view. He was always seen as weak in the first book, but he really did take what others saw as weakness and turn it around on them in this book. It was nice to see that he wasn’t glued to Wren anymore. Callum had his own strengths and they really shine through in .

Wren really became pretty angsty and kind of annoying in Rebel. I didn’t like her nearly as much. I get that it was all to make her more human, but all it did was make me want to slap some sense into her. I can take a little bit of teenage angst, but too much just annoys me. All in all this made me sad. I really loved her in the first book. Not so much in this book.

This was a disappointing end to a story that had a great start. Pretty much the only thing that saved this book for me was that we got to see things from Callum’s point of view and really see him come into his own as a separate person from Wren. I really feel like this book lost the momentum it had from the first books.
