Waiting on Wednesday (3): Girl Parts by John M. Cusick

Girl Parts by John M. Cusick

Release Date: August 10th, Candlewick Press

"Hello, David. My name is Rose. It’s 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 David’s parents present him with a hot Companion bot to encourage healthy bonds and treat "dissociative disorder," he can’t get enough of luscious red-headed 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, knowing Rose 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 Cusick takes rollicking aim at internet culture and our craving for meaningful connection in an uber-connected world.

Basically, this concept sounds both hilarious, genius, and plain old addicting.

Me want. Me want badly. Me haz become caveman. *grunts*

Sounds really good. Essentially, robots make good characters in any book to any person, especially cavemen ;)

Definitely going to be on the lookout for that one! Glad you posted about it. Kind of reminds me of "Lars and the Real Girl" except not totally.
