George is a runaway foster child, who is also a brilliant hacker and coder. Pandora has a hyperexpressive face (think Jim Carrey) and also excels at coding. Together, they are recruited by a large Silicon Valley firm to create a virtual friend for suicidal teens—with AI. What could possibly go wrong with that?
I enjoy unique and original storytelling. Buzz Kill is certainly full of that. I’m not even sure what genre it is. Young adult with serious ethical discussions and a whole bunch of tech talk? Yes, but it’s more than that too. It really made me think. I was so obsessed with it, I downloaded the Kindle Unlimited version—even though the publisher had already given me a free copy. I used the included audible file to listen to it on my two-hour commute each day as well as read it on my breaks and lunch. If you feel like reading a book unlike any other, give Buzz Kill a try. You won’t be sorry. 5 stars!
Thanks to 47North and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
