YES! That's all I can say! My ALL TIME favorite genre in existence is Science Fiction. Not only for books but for tv, movies, everything, but sci-fi books really hold a special place in my heart and on my shelf. But they are SO rare to say the least in YA. And this book is the epitome of what I was really looking for. I mean really, cyborgs! When was the last time you read anything about Cyborgs, and Lunar people! Everything about this book sounds like it is going to be so interesting and futuristic and everything that I love about the sci-fi!!! This is definitely my kind of book!
