Girl Parts

author: John M. Cusick

David and Charlie are opposites. David has a million friends, online and off. Charlie is a soulful outsider, off the grid completely. But neither feels close to anybody. When Davidís parents present him with a hot Companion bot designed to encourage healthy bonds and treat his "dissociative disorder," he canít get enough of luscious redheaded Rose --and he canít get it soon. Companions come with strict intimacy protocols, and whenever he tries anything, David gets an electric shock. Parted from the boy she was built to love, Rose turns to Charlie, who finds he can open up, knowing Rose isnít real. With Charlieís help, the ideal "companion" is about to become her own best friend. In a stunning and hilarious debut, John Cusick takes rollicking aim at internet culture and our craving for meaningful connection in an uberconnected world.

From a debut author! What happens when a robot designed to be a boyís ideal "companion" develops a will of her own? A compulsively readable novel from a new talent. (Ages 14 and up)

author’s comments:
John Cusick is a 2007 graduate of Wesleyan University. About Girl Parts he says, "It is easy to feel lonely, despite the immediacy of technological connection.
