Program 13 by Nicole Sobon
Publication date: August 15th 2012
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction - 15+
Two identities. One Body.
17-year-old Emile Reed, may have died, but she isn't dead. Her body now belongs to Program Thirteen, where her every thought, every movement, is controlled. Until Emile begins to find her way back inside of Thirteen's core, where she manages to fend off Thirteen’s programming to reclaim the life that she lost. But Charles McVeigh, the owner of Vesta Corp, isn’t willing to let Thirteen go. And he will stop at nothing to reclaim control of Thirteen's programming. Because without her, McVeigh has nothing.
What makes you human?
Emile knows she isn't alone in her body. In fact her other side Program 13 is on top at first. She was a real girl but died and sent to Vesta Corp for research and study. Now the two battle for control after Emile living part is set free. Besides the struggle to stay on top Emile also has to deal with Charles McVeigh hunting her down after she escaped. He has to much invested in her to let her be free. She is on the run and in danger to bad for them they programmed her to be strong.
Emile is a complex person but who wouldn't be with two people living inside them. You get to see glimpses of what Program 13 went through and you get to see just how Emile got to were she is. I like her as she is tough and is fighting for her life. She has to face many hard things and still fights to live. Colton is a boy Emile in a way saves. He was ready to give up on life when sh found him and gives him a reason as well to fight to live. He has had a tragic thing happen and fights to get through it. I love how these two work together. Charles McVeighn is just an evil person. You will for sure hate him by the end of the book.
This book is one you can really get into as you keep reading to see what will happen to the characters next, find out more about how Emile got this way, and to see if they will make it to safety. The evil one as I like to call Charles does everything he can to bring Emile in. It doesn't matte who stands in his way, he will stop at nothing. You get to see inside his evil mind at just how far he has planned for things to go. There is lots of action as Emile and Colton fight to survive and escape. One thing is for sure you don't know who to trust or what will happen next. It seems no one is safe in this book. The only thing I wanted more of was a little more of Emile past to get to know who she was better. It is still a great read and any dystopian fans will be pleased.
