Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza

Mila and her mother have recently moved after their home burned down and Mila's father was killed in the blaze.  Mila became fast friends with Kaylee and the two girls spend all their time together.  But their friendship is tested when cute new boy Hunter arrives.  Mila feels an immediate connection with Hunter but out of respect for Kaylee she backs away from the relationship.  Kaylee's jealousy gets the best of her when the girls find Hunter walking on the side of the road and stop to offer him a ride.  Kaylee insists that Mila sit in the bed of the pickup truck so she can have Hunter all to herself.  When Kaylee takes a turn too fast Mila flies out of the truck, surprisingly only injuring her arm.  But the even bigger surprise is that the cut on Mila's arm shows wires and circuits, not blood and muscles.  This book is fine but one of those where I forgot most of it as soon as I was done with it.
