In the sequel to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, readers will get to find out what became of April May and her friends – and, you know, the rest of humanity, too.

This conclusion to the duology offers an exploration of social media, fame, technology, and power with a hopepunk veneer.

(Note: This book is the second in a duology. The first book — An Absolutely Remarkable Thing — is the November 2022 Teen Book Club selection.)
