Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson

In her first book of this "series", The Adoration of Jenna Fox, we are introduced to Jenna who isn't quite legal. She was in a horrific car accident that killed her and her two friends. She had ten percent of her brain function which lead scientists (namely her dad) to believe they could upload her essesence and essentially build a new body.

In Fox Inheritance, it is 260 years later. Locke and Kara have new bodies but are being kept prisioner, which they don't realize at first. Kara has hatred for Jenna. She feels that Jenna never tried to save them or help them. Locke just wants to believe what he has is real.

This was a good sequel and had some interesting perspectives. The characters spent 260 inside a black box, with just their memories. They were forgotten on a shelf until someone created new bodies for them. It's an interesting concept, uploading people to save them and recreate them at a later date. Makes you wonder if science will ever be this advanced.
