Blurb Description:You live. You love. You die. Now RUN.
Every minute, 108 people die. On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. Awakened in a world they barely recognize and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.    Team-written by some of today’s most popular YA authors, ReMade is brought to you by Matthew Cody (Super), Andrea Phillips (Revision), Kiersten White (And I Darken), Gwenda Bond (Girl on a Wire), Carrie Harris (Bad Taste in Boys), and E. C. Myers (The Silence of Six).
Teddy, a teenage heart-throb and reality TV star, is used to being followed by cameras and waking up in strange beds with strange girls. But robot cameras with no operators, beds made of plastic, and girls that have no desire to be in bed with him? That he very unused to. Suddenly trapped in a weird alt-version of his own life – with a rare definitively non-fangirl – the teen star seeks questions, and a way out.

This episode written by Keirsten White.
 Season One will unfold across 15 episodes beginning September 14th, with a new installment dropping every Wednesday until the season finale on December 21st. Jump into this digital serial, available in both text and audio, and find out what the future of fiction holds.

Before you start this review, you should download you FREE copy of Book One in this AWESOME season here.
Or, you can read my review of Episode 1, Shadows and Dreams, written by Matthew Cody here,  Episode two, Hungry by Andrea Philips here, Episode Three, Home, Perilious Home here, Episode 4, The Most Dangerous Game here and Episode 5, Umta here.

After that EXPLOSIVE Episode 5 ending, I could not WAIT to sink my BookDragon talons into Episode Six. 

While it unfortunately didn't pick up the second it left off, the entire season did take a very different turn.

In fact, Episode Six is told from a POV we haven't even seen before - a reality TV Star names Teddy who's convinced that living in this world - which looks exactly like the set he lives in for the "reality" show but also is very different - is all in his head, and he's pretty much gotten all his genes from his father and goon CUCKOO.

He's stranded with a girl who looks like his "girlfriend" on the "reality" show, one who just wants to go home and so they devise a plan.

I really really love where this series is taking us, with each episode giving me MORE questions and VERY FEW answers, but it is so adrenaline filled, and the world builds a little more on itself every episode that I'm thoroughly enjoying every second of it.

While this ending wasn't as bloodthirsty as Episode 5, it was still wonderful, connecting all the previous five episodes to this one in a way YOU CANNOT IMAGINE! After all, where does a reality TV star/ Jock fit into a post-apocalyptic world with barely any civilization?

Despite have only a few pages in Teddy's POV, he has quickly become one of my favourite ReMade characters, and I CANNOT WAIT TO DIVE INTO SEVEN!
