Mutation by K.A. Applegate
Remnants Series #5)
Caught in the depths of their strange new world, Mo' Steel and Billy Weir encounter a lost Remnant, Kubric DiSalvo. Unfortunately, the ship has transformed him, replacing his skin with a transparent plastic coating. Scared and awed by the ship's vicious power, the group tries to rejoin heir friends. Meanwhile, the other Remnants are in danger in another stratum of the ship: Yago and Jobs are stuck in a computer-generated sea battle. When the groups meet, Billy finds he can communicate with the ship's core. Will his strange past help him to understand or even control the ship in time to save everyone?
Another wonderful chapter in the life of the Remnants. Billy and Mo are separated from the rest of the group when Billy goes overboard and Mo jumps in to save him. With his special abilities Billy is able to save himself and Mo long enough for the ship to suck them into what appears to be another part of the ship. Here they meet another Remnant and his father.
While this newly formed group becomes acquainted the others are stuck in a node where they are in a battle for their lives. A losing battle. Lucky for them, Billy and Mo discover a way for Billy to interact with Mother, the computer controlling the ship that they are on. But Mother does not like Billy trying to take over and starts a battle of her own with him.
When we leave this book, Billy and Mother have agreed upon a form of cease fire while they take stock of each other. We are left with a ton of questions and I can not wait to read the next book in the series. Sadly I do not have it and will have to try to get my hands on it sooner rather than later.
Love this series!!!
