Expiration Day is a must, must read!

Tania lived a normal life with her parents. She knew that she was a rarity being a human. There are not many humans left. They are being taken over by teknoids. Human parents that can not have children can adopt a teknoid child. The only loophole is that by the child's eighteenth birthday, the parents have to give the child back to the government.

After a string of stinker of books it was refreshing to find and read this book. Mr. Powell really brought to life Tania. I almost could forget that the teknoids were not human. I have read several books like this but none that really made me feel that close to the teknoid in the story. I could picture this really being the future with all the evolving technology that we currently have in the world. Mr. Powell helped bring to life the teknoids with all of Tania's questions and exploration of what the teknoids feel, are they like humans, can they have relationships, can humans and teknoids really coexist, and what does the future hold for them? All of these questions are answered in this book. I did not see the ending coming and it was a great one. I was sad however that the book did end. Expiration Day is a must, must read! It is one of the best books of 2014!
