Then is her supposed love interest, who makes the decision to remove her emotions once he discovers she has them because it's the "right thing to do." Huh? And she forgives him without any thought. That is not a good guy. A man who discovers what he thinks isn't human actually is human decides to make her less human and he's supposed to be the good guy? A bit later, she discovers that he has lied to her repeatedly, but that's no big deal either. Why do authors make these jerks into the "ideal" for girls?
The whole concept is kind of off anyway. The idea that there has only been one girl who has ever donated her body to science and then died is silly. Frankly, I think you have to be an adult to have that option anyway, but let's just suspend belief for a second. 1.2 million teenagers (just teens) die every year. I think if teenagers had the option to tick "donate to science after death" on a form, a good portion of them would do it. They would think that it would be cool (kids just don't think of death the way adults do).
Not a whole lot of thought went into the execution of this book. The characters are shallow and not well developed. Their actions don't make sense and there seems to be no lead up to the change of heart some characters experience. Add to that no real ending and a "to be continued" at the end, as if it were a TV series. I think that the idea is okay (not original, but not bad) but it wasn't done well. The cover art was the best part of the book.
Freak of Nature tells the story of Kaitlyn, a young girl who was moment ago on deaths door, only to find that she is now a cyborg. She was made to be the ultimate soldier, with no emotions or family ties. She is meant to be cold and heartless. But somehow, somewhere, something went wrong. They made a fatal error - Kaitlyn can feel. She does have emotions. But no one must ever know. For if they did, they would take those emotions away from, or worse, shut her down. So she plays the good little robot. But its not so easy when she's around Lucas. He makes her feel things that she can't explain. Things she shouldn't feel. And even though Lucas is one of the scientists that have made her this way, he can't stop the feelings that he has this amazing creature. Can they ever find a way to be together? Or will Kaitlyn be for ever more just a lonely girl trapped in a robots body.
The story found in this book is something I've never read about before. So immediately I was so intrigued by how the story would play out. It switches POV between Kaitlyn and Lucas which I really liked. I loved getting Lucas' side of things. I always say that there are two sides to every story. I loved both characters. You really feel for both of them, especially Kaitlyn. You are just so sad for her and keep hoping that the scientists won't find out about her feelings and shut her down. Lucas I liked because he felt so believable. You understand why he did some of the things he did. I also liked that he was kind of shy and awkward. It just made him even cuter.
The story itself isn't that action-packed or suspenseful. It focus more building up the back-story and the love aspect. But this is the first book in a series so hopefully the next book will be more action-packed and we'll get to see more of Kaitlyn in action with all her enhanced traits.
This was a quick and very enjoyable read and a great introductory book. I am really looking forward to the next installment. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique read with a sweet romance.

Kaitlyn was not an ordinary seventeen year old. She had checked the box on a form donating her body to science in the event of her death.Read more
