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 David’s parents present him with a hot Companion bot designed to encourage healthy bonds and treat “dissociative disorder,” he can’t get enough of luscious, redheaded Rose — and he can’t 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 to her, knowing that she isn’t real. With Charlie’s help, the ideal “companion” is about to become her own best friend. In a stunning and hilarious debut, John M. Cusick takes rollicking aim at Internet culture and our craving for meaningful connection in an uber-connected world. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 2/11/2014

    " Yep, the title is pretty accurate. This book is mostly about girl parts... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 2/5/2014

    " Uneven, but it held my interest. The female characters (Rebecca, May) were a lot more interesting than the boys, though the book doesn't focus on them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alaina | 1/26/2014

    " One main character didn't seem to have much of a matter to the story throughout the first half. The book picks up about a fourth of the way through, and since then it's been an awesome book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joant | 1/24/2014

    " Was this book so disjointed because it was ( kind of) a book about disassociation? The idea behind this book is interesting , and the characters were interesting ,too. It just felt like there were too many themes that the author wanted to touch on. And too many stereotypes used to convey the plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 1/15/2014

    " Great concept but the overall flow of the book was rushed and it seemed to run out of steam by the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gretchen Paulson | 12/9/2013

    " This book was ok. I am glad it was short. Let's hope our society doesn't ever become like this book projected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Journey | 11/18/2013

    " Such a cool and creative idea "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 11/7/2013

    " Cute story about a robot "companion" and how she changes the lives of two boys. It made me laugh. I look forward to reading more about Rose. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/10/2013

    " Eh. A quick, interesting, and ultimately unsatisfying read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Rose | 6/19/2013

    " Makes you think about how connected you are to people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexandria Godina | 3/1/2013

    " I actually really enjoyed this book, but i felt like it was so short and underdeveloped. I could eaisly see this book being another 100 pages or a series and it being better for that. It was just all too rushed and i wanted more of almost all the storylines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 W. | 1/6/2013

    " Too focused on sex and sexuality for my tastes. Nicely written and unique take on the subject matter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheyenne | 11/26/2012

    " Thought this was an interesting idea for a book. I loved all the beginning, but the ending is so abrupt. Also, the first two thirds of the book is pointless with the ending. That was such a stupid ending.Why can't one of them at least get the girl? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saradippity | 7/14/2011

    " Fun, probably more enjoyable to young adults than more experienced readers. The metaphors were blatantly obvious, but I think that as a teen I was always thrilled to be able to pick out a metaphor, so that's okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina | 6/1/2011

    " Had some issues... But the idea was cool.. it could be a million times better! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 CeCe | 5/16/2011

    " What, exactly, were we supposed to get from this story? The only message I got was that all boys want one thing; not exactly ground-breaking news. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 4/28/2011

    " Makes you think about how connected you are to people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bettina | 4/25/2011

    " Interesting with some real aspects of sentiment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 3/8/2011

    " Uneven, but it held my interest. The female characters (Rebecca, May) were a lot more interesting than the boys, though the book doesn't focus on them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille | 2/9/2011

    " A commentary on technology and disconnection housed within a quirky sci-fi shell. I can't wait to ask John some questions about what really happened to robot rebel Rose when he visits my library! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicholle | 2/9/2011

    " Disappointing. The concept and themes are quite compelling; the omniscient narration is weak. I wanted to appreciate the book, but I was left simply valuing what the book could have been. "
