What book am I eagerly anticipating at this moment? Why it just so happens to be…

Willful Machines
by Tim Floreen

Releases October 20th, 2015 from Simon Pulse



In this action-packed, high-octane debut, the closeted son of an ultra-conservative president must keep a budding romance secret from his father while protecting himself from a sentient computer program that’s terrorizing the United States–and has zeroed in on him as its next target.

In the near future, scientists create what may be a new form of life: an artificial human named Charlotte. All goes well until Charlotte escapes, transfers her consciousness to the Internet, and begins terrorizing the American public.

Charlotte’s attacks have everyone on high alert–everyone except Lee Fisher, the closeted son of the US president. Lee has other things to worry about, like keeping his Secret Service detail from finding out about his crush on Nico, the eccentric, Shakespeare-obsessed new boy at school. And keeping Nico from finding out about his recent suicide attempt. And keeping himself from freaking out about all his secrets.

But when attacks start happening at his school, Lee realizes he’s Charlotte’s next target. Even worse, Nico may be part of Charlotte’s plan too.

As Lee races to save himself, uncover Charlotte’s plan, and figure out if he can trust Nico, he comes to a whole new understanding of what it means to be alive… and what makes life worth living.

LGBTQ. Artificial intelligence that gets too smart. Also, the crow/raven book cover seems to be trending this fall. Ahem. This book sounds really cool. It points toward a great romance in the middle of Charlotte, the artificial human, wreaking havoc nationwide. I’m really excited to find out what happens here. It sounds like it could be pretty unique, and both adorable and terrifying at the same time.

  1. I’m so glad you’re looking forward to reading this one, Mallory! I just posted my review for it a few days ago, and I can tell you that it is definitely worth the read 😀

    The romance is completely adorable, as is the main character, and all the stuff to do with Charlotte is so intriguing.

    I hope you can read this book soon, and that you liked it as much as I did!
