author: John M. Cusick
Companion bots like Rose come with strict intimacy protocols, and whenever “her boy,” David, tries anything, he gets an electric shock. Rejected by David, the boy she was built to love, Rose turns to Charlie, who finds he can open up, knowing Rose isn't real. In a stunning and hilarious debut, John Cusick takes rollicking aim at Internet culture and our craving for meaningful connection in an uberconnected world.
“Charming and witty, peppered with satirical jabs at the irony of being lonely and isolated in an increasingly connected world.” — The Horn Book
