Follow April May, a young woman who finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of viral fame — and an unexpected role on the global stage.

This funny, poignant book tackles questions of AI, the responsibility humans have to one another, and how we shape our identity.

(Note: This book is the first in a duology. The second book — A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor — is the December 2022 Teen Book Club selection.)
