Rewind - Marilyn Kaye I, sadly, am no longer the target audience for this book. I decided to read it after growing nostalgic for the early books of the REPLICA series. Naturally it was a breeze to read through, and it's entertaining on a very basic level, but Grown-Up Me was disappointed with all of the "handwave-ium" explanations for how everything was actually possible. The second book of the trilogy sends Amy inside a human body as a pathogen? The third book sends her into the future? At one time I would have eaten this up. I think I'll bow out and hit up the other books on my massive TBR list.

Thank you, Marilyn Kaye, for writing the REPLICA series and possibly igniting my interest in genetics so many years ago.
