David and Charlie are as different from one another as the night is from the day. David is Mr. Popularity, obsessed with his computer, getting lucky, and fitting in. Charlie doesn't even own a TV, would rather roam the forest than be around people, and has no clue how to talk to a girl. Both boys, however, are dissociated from the world around them. And it takes a beautiful red-headed Companion bot to wake them both up.

Girl Parts just might be the most unique book I have read this year. At no point did I have a clue what was going to happen next. Filled with wit and quirky characters, Girl Parts is more than just a fun Sci-Fi read. Cusick's warning is clear: The more we as a society distance ourselves from one another (whether through the use of computers and TVs or emotionally distancing ourselves) the harder it is for us to connect with the people around us. To sympathize to one another. To care about one another. And ultimately how dangerous that can be.

I am looking forward to reading more from this debuting author!
