Staff Reviews

April May's life is changed by a man. To be specific, a giant metal man whose clones show up in major cities around the world. The "Carls" throw April May into the world of fame, her becoming the leading expert, and eventual advocate for them. But strange things keep happening, shared dreams filled with codes, inciting riots, polarizing all of the world. Can April May convince them that they came in peace, when she's not sure herself? Hank Green's debut novel definitely sets him apart from his brother, John, making his own mark in the literary world.

“This book is so much fun. When April May stumbles across the first ‘Carl,’ she initially thinks it’s an art installation. It turns out these giant statues turned up overnight in major cities around the globe. Due to the viral video she made with her friend Andy, April May finds herself in the middle of a worldwide conversation and trying to manage her newfound celebrity status. Green is an excellent storyteller and has delivered a great coming-of-age/sci-fi debut novel.”
