Helen Roderick assumed life would get easier after she died. The plan was simple: scan her neural paths, simulate her brain on an enormous bank of computers, then live an untroubled life free of aging, dandruff, or any of the other drawbacks of hauling her own squishy meatsack around.
But nothing's going according to plan. Even as the government is trying to shut her lab down and steal their research, Helen must use her growing powers to find the culprit of a nuclear attack. She uncovers a force bent not on geopolitical conquest, but on the extinction of all humankind.
Will our heroine be enslaved or deleted by the Feds? Can she avert an impending war with China? When will she find time to complete her doctorate? And we're trying not to judge, but isn't Dr. Mellings way too old for her?
Alternately goofy and dark, The Improbable Rise of Singularity Girl is the story of a singular woman and a life lived at exponential speed.

Great Fantasy Sci-fi and super relevant to now
I found this book by accident really. I was trying to find anything worth reading when I stumbled on the Improbable Rise of Singularity. I just read it by chance. It had no reviews and I never read books without one, but it was great. Incredibly detailed. Ideas that even though they were written before the current political climate, feel super relevant. A story like I had never read before and I read a lot of sci-fi and urban fantasy. I'm writing this review so that the next person who stumbles on it doesn't think, "I'm not gonna read it because there's no review." Here's the review if you like this genre, this is a great book.
