Product Details


Literary agent Cusick’s debut is a funny, touching, near-future science fiction tale that explores teen relationships and what it means to be a “real” person.

A quick, pleasant read and will work well with male reluctant readers
—Library Media Connection

With an almost anthropological eye, first-time novelist Cusick digs into the connections people make—physically, emotionally, and technologically.…It’s Rose’s growth, with Charlie’s help after she’s brutally rejected by David, which forms the emotional core of this bittersweet and prescient novel, and which make the teenager-as-robot metaphor work so well.
—Publishers Weekly

This modern fable about the breakdown of interpersonal communication skills in the computer age is also a keenly observed and timely take on relationship building, gender roles and the qualities that make us human.
—Kirkus Reviews

Cusick’s first novel is charming and witty, peppered with satirical jabs at the irony of being lonely and isolated in an increasingly connected world.
—Horn Book

Rose, programmed to be naïve, hopelessly romantic, and cheerful, is achingly endearing as she struggles to find her own self under all of the assigned cues. There are moments of absolute raw examination of what it means to feel alone while networked with millions that may shock readers into considering the depth of their own connections.
—Bulletin of the Center of Children’s Books
