Girl Parts

Girl Parts


If you've read Manga, watched Anime, or even caught a few 80s movies you're probably familiar with the basic story of this book - What teenage boys really want is a robogirl with human skin. Okay, that's a over simplification still when the boys in this book become "disassociated" parents and counselors decide that's how you fix them. Give them their own "girl" who will train them on how to make human connections.

David and Charlie are two very different boys who both have this form of therapy recommended to them. One gets it, one does not. Still the girl assigned to one crosses paths with both boys and that's really the heart of the story - how she interacts with the two, one she's programmed to be with and one she is not.

I'd like to give it the full 5 stars but it felt a little short and as though parts are missing - not in that it's an incomplete story. It's complete. Still it feels as though there was room for aspects of it to really be expanded upon and by not doing so it left it a little weaker of a book that it had to be. Still a good overall story, a fast read - just maybe too fast. 4/5 Stars
