The Body Electric
Author: Beth Revis
Publication Year: 2014


The future world is at peace.

Ella Shepherd has dedicated her life to using her unique gift—the ability to enter people’s dreams and memories using technology developed by her mother—to help others relive their happy memories.

But not all is at it seems.

Ella starts seeing impossible things—images of her dead father, warnings of who she cannot trust. Her government recruits her to spy on a rebel group, using her ability to experience—and influence—the memories of traitors. But the leader of the rebels claims they used to be in love—even though Ella’s never met him before in her life. Which can only mean one thing…

Someone’s altered her memory.

Ella’s gift is enough to overthrow a corrupt government or crush a growing rebel group. She is the key to stopping a war she didn’t even know was happening. But if someone else has been inside Ella’s head, she cannot trust her own memories, thoughts, or feelings.

So who can she trust?


Why?: I really enjoyed Beth Revis's Across the Universe trilogy. It's a great sci-fi generation ship adventure with mystery in each book. I've heard that this book takes place in the same world, but back on Earth. I like Revis's style of writing, so I am looking forward to reading this book. 

Expectations: I'm expecting some really cool sci-fi elements in a coming-of-age YA story. I know Revis is big into NASA and all things futuristic so I want to see what tech comes into this story.   

Judging a book by its cover: This cover is really cool. I like the colors and the outline of the girl. I'm intrigued by the insects. Te swarm reminds me of a hive or nest technology like the Borg or something.
