Synopsis from Goodreads: Heart-stopping and electric, MILA 2.0: Origins: The Fire contains a short prequel story and an excerpt to MILA 2.0, the first book in a riveting Bourne Identity–style trilogy by Debra Driza.

Mila can't remember anything before the fire that took her father's life. It's normal to have some memory loss after traumatic events, but Mila doesn't remember if she's ever learned to ride a bike, or if she's ever been in love. Nothing.

What she doesn't know is that she isn't supposed to remember—that she was built in a computer science lab and programmed to forget. Because if she remembers, she might discover her true identity.

The question is: If she relived the fire, what would she see?

I've been looking forward to reading MILA 2.0 for quite some time and I jumped at the chance to read this prequel to the series! It's a fun way to get to know the author's writing style and see a bit of this series. And I loved it! Although it was just 15 pages the waiting for the first book (which will be published in March) is now even harder.

Like the title suggests you get to know Mila while she's waking up and discovers her house is on fire. I think this story will make more sense once I've read the first book and get to know Mila and her life. She manages to escape the house thinking her parents won't be there, but then she sees their car on the porch and she goes back inside where she thinks she sees her father. But does she?

Who could have thought a book with only 15 pages could have a killer cliff hanger at the end? Well, Debra Driza totally managed that! I loved her writing style and I'm already hooked by the story. I'll definitely be picking up MILA 2.0 when it comes out!

And last, but not least: the cover. I can't write this review without mentioning how gorgeous I think they are! I especially love the dark read back ground on this one!
