Moon Rising by Daniel Weisbeck

She is not who she thinks she is. Her true identity is a mystery. Trapped in a cellar by a man she does not know, a young girl is forced to act out the life of someone she has never met to stay alive. When she escapes, she finds herself on the run, confused about her past, and hunted by a sinister corporation. With the help of Bobby Houndstooth, a teacher she once knew, and Nutt, an android who loves to dance, Silon begins to unravel her true identity. She must decide if she will be the person others expect her to be or if she can become a person of her own making. Even if it kills her. A Sci-Fi Biopunk Thriller for fans of the Ghost in the Shell, Klara and the Sun, and the Murderbot Diaries
