[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads)
Skylar has been betrayed.
By her sister, who was willing to sacrifice Skylar for her own plans, and by Rain, who lied to her about everything.
Perhaps worst of all, Skylar and her friends failed to stop the Real World’s plans for the people who are plugged in. The Body Market is now open for business—and Inara, Skylar’s best friend, is for sale.
Shaken by the betrayal of everyone she trusted, Skylar learns there is a price on her head and that a bounty hunter is determined to deliver her to the Body Market.
But Skylar is through being a pawn in everyone else’s game. She may be the only one who can stop what her family started. And she must do it before everyone in the App World runs out of time.

Skye has been betrayed by the people she trust the most and the Body Market is open and Inara, Skylar’s best Friend is for sale. When she is kinapped by a bounty hunter who is insistent on delivering her to the Body Market, Skylar is left to fend for herself.
Gosh, just reading about the details of the body market makes me sick to my stomach.
I didn’t enjoy the dual perspective of this book but that wasn’t what made me DNF it.
Okay, what didn’t sit well with me and made me DNF this book was because Skylar is outrageous. I was disappointed enough when she wanted to manipulate Kit’s feelings for her the same way she thought Rain did with her. This was such a big turn off for me. Also, Skylar killed 2 people, who probably no one remembered, but she isn’t remorseful or she didn’t break down AT ALL and now she wants to manipulate someone else? I get that she killed them for survival, but there was no ounce of remorse or guilt at all.
I heard about the love triangle and actually really wanted to continue reading, but Skylar’s character was really such a big turn off that I decided not to continue at all.
