My attempt to sort of combine the two versions take too, where one has more voice and the other maybe made Lauren's intro clearer. For the last question I'm also considering "--and according to Lauren, her one chance at life--but can Kira really condemn innocent people to save herself?"
I'm really going in circles with this I feel.
SIDE NOTE: No, the Lauren stuff cannot be added earlier because of reasons inherent to the premise. Thank you for thinking of it.
Being a teen android—and the only android ever—isn’t fun, it sucks. Movie androids get cool laser eyes and X-ray vision. All Kira Garcia gets is overheating, a human family that forgets she’s not human, and, oh yeah, a sadistic creator who'll kill her at the tiniest sign of sentience.
And it’s pretty clear she’s sentient.
All Kira wants is freedom—and to figure out why she was made. So, when her creators finally order her demolition, her only hope is to convince her family to escape with her. But when an attack meant for Kira leaves her brother in the hospital, all hope for escape is dashed. She can’t abandon her brother. Instead, Kira has a new goal: find the man who slit her brother’s throat and make him pay.
Enter Lauren, a girl about shatter Kira's very reality. It turns out, Lauren is from a parallel universe, a world where Kira’s entire life is just a book. A book that Lauren travelled to fix an apparently ungodly ending. If Lauren's telling the truth, Kira's creators are more complex than she thought—and more insidious. What’s more, her makers have other androids; androids in just as much trouble as Kira. Taking the time to save them might mean giving up Kira’s one chance at revenge—and according to Lauren, her one chance at life—but who is Kira if she lets them die?
