When it all started we shared the ins and outs of Serial Box and Remade. Last week, we reviewed S01E08. Come back weekly for ongoing reviews of your new favorite way to consume YA fiction.
This week’s episode brings us the world through May’s eyes, who we previously spent time with in the second episode. In case you’ve forgotten, May’s food allergies are a real problem in a world where food is as scarce as it is foreign (remember, coffee that tastes like hot orange juice with a side of ass).
So, our ReMades are away from the caretakers, free of strange creatures (sabertooth, giant bunnies, unicorns?), off the train headed no where fast and…Unsure of where they are. This world is a never-ending source of pain and frustration so OF COURSE there’s a random snowstorm to nearly bury May and Gabe while they’re separated from the group. Lucky for them (?) there is a field of glass sheets to help build shelter (um, what in the world is going on in this world?).
She was the one person with nothing to contribute. The one person with no future in the future.
May is facing the stages of grief, with a little bit of anger at missing out on all of the things she’s planned, including being the first Chinese-American Supreme Court Judge. Hey, don’t count that possibility out yet - who says this world lacks the need for organized government?
Alright, so, predictions? My latest theory is they’re living in some sort of Sims world, where their spirits have been trapped in online avatars. I’m still wondering what happens when you die a second time. Do you get to go back home? Move on? Do it over and over again - ReMade inception? But really, it’s anyone’s guess as to what’s happening in ReMade! So tell me yours, if you’re following along!

You live. You love. You Die. Now RUN. ReMade is a thrilling sci-fi adventure that will take readers past the boundaries of time, space, and even death.
This is the 9th episode of ReMade, a 15-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Andrea Phillips.
All May wants is some alone time – being stuck with a ragtag team of the previously-dead could drive anyone a little crazy (especially when no one has showered for a week). But in this strange and unfamiliar world, danger lurks behind every tree…and sometimes in every cloud.
ReMade Season One: In one moment the lives of twenty-three teenagers are forever changed, and it’s not just because they all happen to die. “ReMade” in a world they barely recognize – one with robots, space elevators, and unchecked jungle – they must work together to survive. They came from different places, backgrounds, and families, and now they might be the last people on earth. Lost meets The Maze Runner in exciting serial adventure.
