False Memory

False Memory
By Dan Krokos
Hyperion, 2012. 327 pages. Young Adult

Miranda wakes up with no memory of who she is or where she belongs.  While exploring a nearby mall, she discovers that she can release an energy that causes panic in everyone around her.  She meets Peter who strangely doesn't seem to be affected by her ability.  Peter says he knows who she is and as she follows him she comes to learn that she is a genetically altered teen, trained to be a weapon as part of a special force.  But Miranda finds it hard to adjust to her old life, and discovers dark secrets that may change her life and the lives of everyone around her.

This is a fast paced story that is light on character development and heavy on action and explosions.  The storyline is interesting with good twists and reveals, but I was left struggling a bit to care for the characters.  Still I think this will appeal to teens looking for a fast moving sci fi.
