An Absolutely Remarkable Thing

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing

In his much-anticipated debut novel, Hank Green--cocreator of Crash _x000D_ Course, Vlogbrothers, and SciShow--spins a sweeping, cinematic tale _x000D_ about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realizing _x000D_ she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have _x000D_ possibly imagined.
_x000D_
_x000D_ The Carls just appeared. Roaming through New York _x000D_ City at three a.m., twenty-three-year-old April May stumbles across a _x000D_ giant sculpture. Delighted by its appearance and craftsmanship--like a _x000D_ ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor--April and her_x000D_ friend, Andy, make a video with it, which Andy uploads to YouTube. The _x000D_ next day, April wakes up to a viral video and a new life. News quickly _x000D_ spreads that there are Carls in dozens of cities around the world--from _x000D_ Beijing to Buenos Aires--and April, as their first documentarian, finds _x000D_ herself at the center of an intense international media spotlight. _x000D_ Seizing the opportunity to make her mark on the world, April now has to _x000D_ deal with the consequences her new particular brand of fame has on her _x000D_ relationships, her safety, and her own identity. And all eyes are on _x000D_ April to figure out not just what the Carls are, but what they want from_x000D_ us. Compulsively entertaining and powerfully relevant, An Absolutely _x000D_ Remarkable Thing grapples with big themes, including how the social _x000D_ internet is changing fame, rhetoric, and radicalization; how our culture_x000D_ deals with fear and uncertainty; and how vilification and adoration _x000D_ spring for the same dehumanization that follows a life in the public _x000D_ eye. The beginning of an exciting fiction career, An Absolutely _x000D_ Remarkable Thing is a bold and insightful novel of now.
