This is going to blow everyone away.

I was lucky enough to read this early, hunched under blankets and muttering "holy shit holy shit" over and over again as I did. Where Spark lit the flame, Show blows everything wide open.

Dragged along to her brother's work do, aspiring journalist Cora meets Adrien, son of the CEO of Pomegranate Technologies, a company that uses AI to recreate real people as holograms. Her new friend Adrien is her first friend who gets what it means to be neurodiverse in a worl

I finished this book reeling, bursting with emotions and ready to read it again and recommend it to everyone I know. Elle is neurodivergent herself and that knowledge and understanding seeps through into every element of this book. The protagonist, Cora is autistic and her best friend has ADHD.

Cora is dealing with everything that's hard about feeling different, difficulties with friendships, trying to understand the social norms, finding her voice. When she is invited to help with a project at

This is MAGNIFICENT. I’ve cried; I’ve been angry; I’ve been shocked. Cora is SUCH a magnificent main character and this whole premise is FASCINATING. How grief can change how we might think and feel; how science can be our best friend abc our downfall. Man, what a kick in the face. Something Elle does so magnificently is talk about what makes us human, and this book hits the nail on the head.

Full of feeling, I’ve never felt for a book like this before. Through AI, digital doubles & challenging us to question the ever-blurring boundaries between what is really real, this story is unflinching, unapologetic & ultimately human.
