Love the natural tech world building. Clearly someone who knows how to write good sci fi. POV of AI is fascinating, and a very likeable character. Some of the most authentic teen rep. I've seen in YA. A great near-future read.

I couldn't get into this. Loved the concept, but the beginning deals with it so explicitly and exposition-y that I just couldn't get into it.

Binged through this in a weekend. Well put together mystery with high tension and engaging, believable characters. I love how the story centers around the dead baby, and how the story critiques (without being heavy-handed) how all the characters expl ...more

Corrie ten Boom
“And so seated next to my father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, "Father, what is sexsin?"
He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my surprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case off the floor and set it on the floor.
Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?" he said.
I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.
It's too heavy," I said.
Yes," he said, "and it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It's the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.”
Corrie Ten Boom, The Hiding Place: The Triumphant True Story of Corrie Ten Boom

“Dear Jesus...how foolish of me to have called for human help when You are here.”

“This is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.”

L.M. Montgomery
“Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray I’ll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field all alone or in the deep, deep woods and I'd look up into the sky—up—up—up—into that lovely blue sky that looks as if there was no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
