  • Paperback -What happens when a robot designed to be a boys ideal companion develops a will of her own? This is a compulsively readable novel from a hot new talent in YA. Hello, David. My name is Rose. Its a pleasure to meet you. We are now entering minute two of our friendship. According to my Intimacy Clock, a handshake is now appropriate. 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 Davids parents present him with a hot Companion bot to encourage healthy bonds and treat dissociative disorder, he cant get enough of luscious red-headed Rose - and he cant get it soon. Companions come with strict intimacy protocols, and whenever he tries anything, David gets an electric shock. Severed from the boy she was built to love, Rose turns to Charlie, who finds he can open up, knowing Rose isnt real. With Charlies 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 uber-connected world. A strong boy read that girls will love too: sexy, hilarious, high-tech, and full of pop-culture nods to everything from Blade Runner to Buffy
  • David is a rich kid with a million friends. Charlie is a longer, disconnected from the High School world around him. Then they meet Rose: part girl, part robot, and all a boy could want. Before long, Rose is teaching David and Charlie how to feel human again
