Mini Review ~ Tabula Rasa by Kristen Lippert-Martin

Series: standalone
Genre: YA science fiction
Pages: 352
Publication date: September 23rd, 2014
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Goodreads Description: 
The Bourne Identity meets Divergent in this heart-pounding debut.

Sixteen-year-old Sarah has a rare chance at a new life. Or so the doctors tell her. She’s been undergoing a cutting-edge procedure that will render her a tabula rasa—a blank slate. Memory by memory her troubled past is being taken away.

But when her final surgery is interrupted and a team of elite soldiers invades the isolated hospital under cover of a massive blizzard, her fresh start could be her end. 

Navigating familiar halls that have become a dangerous maze with the help of a teen computer hacker who's trying to bring the hospital down for his own reasons, Sarah starts to piece together who she is and why someone would want her erased. And she won’t be silenced again.

A high-stakes thriller featuring a non-stop race for survival and a smart heroine who will risk everything, Tabula Rasa is, in short, unforgettable.

Tabula Rasa turned out to be a nice thrill of a read! It had a rocky start, but steadily improved as the story progressed. It picked up with the introduction of characters--Thomas was my favorite because he was such a cute, geeky, funny guy--then picked up even more when more action was thrown in and the pace was quickened. Until the point where all three of those things had happened. I had liked the book, but wasn't fully invested in was happening and I hadn't connected to the main character as much as I would've liked. However, the book got very exciting and interesting in the last quarter or so. It had my stomach in knots, it had me reading quick, and it even had me crying at one moment and laughing at another. The story wrapped up with a cute scene that left me smiling.

Overall, Tabula Rasa was nice. While it started off rocky, it didn't stay that way. It became a much stronger and more exciting book that I really enjoyed reading.
