Growing up with a violent, control-freak father, sixteen year old Emma Banks has had a tougher ride than most. Unable to cope with the horrors of her childhood, Emma's world unravels in a spiral of drug abuse and self-harm. Following a failed suicide attempt, she finds herself committed to a secure psychiatric institution where she is finally forced to confront the painful past she has been trying to escape. Now she must fight the instinct to run and hide, and piece together a way forward. This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged. Note: this book contains some strong language, graphic scenes and/or tough topics, so is only suitable for older YA readers.

"My favourite thing about The Finer Points of Becoming Machine is definitely the title; it just makes sense when you read the book. The book is very clever in the way it is written, it is quite emotional and deep at points." Oliver Buchanan, Balerno Community High
