The Fox Inheritance by Mary Pearson

In The Adoration of Jenna Fox, Jenna destroyed the copies of the brains of her friends Locke and Kara.  What she didn't know was that there were backups of those brain scans and now, 260 years later, Locke and Kara have been given new bodies and are finally out of the small boxes in which they have spent centuries.  Both were scared and aware during the time their downloaded brains were locked in the boxes, but the years seem two have made Kara mentally unstable as well.  Now she is determined to find Jenna and punish her for not saving them at the time she was brought back to life.  Escaping from their captor, Locke and Kara begin separate journeys across the country to find Jenna and to stay free.  I really loved the first book in this series and had high hopes for this one but it didn't live up to its predecessor.  Which is not to say that it is a poorly written or bad book, just not as compelling as the issues that arose in the other title.
