David and Charlie are complete opposites. David has lots of friends while Charlie is more of an outsider. When the school psychologist determines that the two boys have detachment disorder, David’s parents enroll him into a program to help him to learn human interaction skills. To do so, they present him with a hot Companion bot, he can’t get enough of the red-headed Rose. With strict relationship protocols, however, David gets shocked whenever he tries anything. When Charlie and Rose meet, the two realize that they can open up to each other despite her being real. Craving more, Rose and Charlie try to figure out a way the two can be more sexually intimate. Will the two succeed?
A very disturbing, inappropriate book. Although the characters are interesting enough, the story itself leaves something to be desired. Not recommended for any library collection. HS. No. Reviewer: Jessica Moody, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High.
