During a routine drive to dinner with her parents, sixteen-year-old Annie Walker’s car is struck by a pickup truck. The resulting accident kills her parents and leaves Annie unconscious. When she wakes up, she thinks she’s in a hospital, but the truth is far stranger. Annie has been downloaded into a computer program called PATTIE.With the help of PATTIE’s brilliant programmer, Eric, Annie struggles to come to terms with her new existence. She also finds that being inside a computer has both advantages and disadvantages. Unfortunately, the disadvantages can kill her.
All That Remains of Me is a novel by H.S. Stone. It is in my opinion a masterpiece of the young adult genre. I really enjoyed reading this book. The story opens with sixteen-year-old Annie in a violent car crash. The wreck scene was wonderfully written and served its purpose of giving the reader that “spark” that fully engages the reader in the contract for the willing suspension of disbelief.
The thought of humans being stuck inside computers is horrifying, interesting and some might even say exciting. This concept was refreshing for it’s out of the box plotline. The story touches upon many valuable life lessons about life, friendship, and love. The characters were realistic and well written in that they were not caricatures of the modern day teenager. I found that I could easily identify with both of the main characters, Annie and Eric.
The chemistry between the two was wonderfully written. It was by no means a “sweep you off your feet” love story but more of a “slow burn”. Annie is a very funny and relatable heroine, and Eric is the perfect contrast , nerdy but strong willed and loyal. This book was a page turner and I will probably read it a few times more just to revisit the characters that I have come to greatly enjoy.
