The Six YA

This is one of the most amazing Artificial Intelligence (AI) books for young adults I have read in a long time.  It had me hooked all the way through, this book was just new and refreshing (and it is no secret I just love AI, gamer, techy books), but this book is different and special in its own way, not to mention it is build on facts, so slightly scary too.
Adam is a seventeen year old bot, and he is dying, quickly, within the next six months.  Adam's dad, Thomas, like most dads will do anything to save his son, but really how far will that extend?  Thomas works for Unicorp in the AI division, Unicorp is under contract with the Department of Defense (DoD).  Currently Thomas is working on the Pioneer Project, a very secret project for the DoD.  Before Adam dies he and five other terminally ill teens are recruited by the DoD for the Pioneer Project were their minds will be transferred, persevered, and put to use in robots (or any other machine or computer) with special neuromorphic control units attached. But will they be up and running in enough time to stop Sigma a AI that Adam's dad created, and has managed to get loose on the internet and has proclaimed world domination?  Or will Sigma be able to trap all the pioneers and delete all their files from existence?  There is so much more to this book than I could ever put in this synopsis or is I did, why would you read the book?  Just know that this book is much bigger on the inside than it looks.  It truly is amazing this whole AI world is, but this one just might rock your satellites a bit.
