* EveryoneHasStandards: Zoie after her {{Jerkass}} behavior [[spoiler:warns Lia in ''Crashed'' that the Brotherhood is trying to kill the mechs they've taken hostage. She also sets aside her resentment towards the mech on seeing that Lia's parents are broken up on their oldest daughter having left.]]



* TheGloriousWarOfSisterRivalry: Taken UpToEleven with how Zoie after Lia's accident usurps her sister's social position. She steals Lia's boyfriend for one, and becomes popular with her. She also doesn't think that the mech is really her sister. [[spoiler:They manage to form a truce by the end of the second book, due to Lia's dad bargaining for his daughter to return home.]]

** Zoie in the meantime deals with her SurvivalsGuilt by stealing Lia's boyfriend and social status, while treating the mech replacement . It was her fault that Lia was in the fatal car accident in the first place, but Zoie never acknowledges it in the first two books. [[spoiler:Then after Lia runs away, Zoie starts attending the Brotherhood meetings. The nicest thing she does is warn Lia that the Brotherhood is trying to figure out how to kill the mechs, since even she doesn't think they should go that far.]]

* AdultFear:
** Lia's parents make the choice to recreate Lia's consciousness as an artificial intelligence in a mech. They're not that comfortable with the decision, especially since it means she will be immortal, perfect, and ostracized. [[spoiler:The reason why Lia runs away at the end of the first book is because she hears her father debating with himself about if he made the right choice.]]

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: The accident happens the one day that Lia is covering for her sister's volunteering hours. She and Zoie are very aware of this.



* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: What Lia's parents think of her post-accident.

to:

* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: What Lia's parents think of her post-accident. It's even worse since Lia didn't want to be recreated via mech, meaning her parents took the choice out of her hands.


Added DiffLines:

* YouShouldHaveDiedInstead: Near the end of the first book Lia shouts at Zoie that Zoie was supposed to be the one in the car crash. Lia knows this isn't fair, but she hits her RageBreakingPoint at how she didn't want to be brought back as a "mech", all because she was covering for her sister.

A young adult sci-fi trilogy by Robin Wasserman. Lia Kahn was perfect: rich, beautiful, popular. Until the accident that nearly killed her. Now she has been downloaded into a new body that only looks human. Lia will never feel pain again, she will never age, and she can't ever truly die. Her brain will simply be reuploaded into another body. Her friends and family desert her and she gets stares wherever she goes. Some strict Christians even believe she does not deserve to exist.

* AfterTheEnd: Some sort of nuclear disaster wiped out most cities on the eastern seaboard of the United States. The Middle East took heavy damage as well, Mecca and Jerusalem are specifically mentioned as destroyed. It's implied, that the series of events that led to a WorldWarThree, where nuclear and biological WMD's were used, began with a number of act of nuclear terrorism. The nuclear devastation of the Middle East led to a decline of religion.
