Pg. 69: Walter Greatshell's "Mad Skills"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Mad Skills by Walter Greatshell.

About the book:
Mad Skills is the story of Madeline Grant, a teenage girl who suffers severe brain injuries in an accident, but who is saved by an experimental treatment: her brain is interfaced with a computer. This not only restores her ability to think, it makes her the smartest person on Earth. But there is a serious downside: How do you cope with a world in which everyone but you is shallow and stupid? And what if the shallow, stupid people who made your new brain are still in control of it? In fact, what if they can make you do anything they want?
Walter Greatshell's books include Xombies: Apocalypticon and Xombies: Apocalypse Blues.
