Book Review


After the vuvv came to Earth, people were excited. The vuvv offered technology, advanced medicines, better lifestyles—but at a cost. Vuvv tech has replaced almost all jobs that were once occupied by humans. When Adam and his new girlfriend Chloe are offered a job as the stars of their own romance, it seems their lives are about to turn around. However, Adam and Chloe can’t even stand each other. But they need the money that comes with the job. Challenges come crashing together when Adam’s art is exhibited in a vuvv-sponsored exhibit and then soundly rejected. This rejection spurs Adam and his family to leave their pitiful existence and start over fresh and new.
