3 out of 5 stars

Indira is not thrilled when she has to team up with an android to put together an art show, but she quickly learns that Fawn is more than just a android. They learn to work together and explore their artistic sides through photography. Eventually, the two girls discover that friendship is possible no matter if you are cyborg, human, or android. They begin to have romantic feelings for each other as well.

I liked this story pretty well. It’s not amazing, but it was interesting to explore the world of androids and cyborgs, and see how society has different prejudices against AI, and how technology is used in unexpected ways. The world building was great! The plot was just okay.

I didn’t connect with either of the main characters. They had some good character development, and I enjoyed slowly discovering more of their individual back stories. But nothing really grabbed my attention or touched my heart in a meaningful way. I liked the characters, but I didn’t love them.

I did not like that Indira and Fawn became romantically involved at the end. The lesbian romance felt forced. I think they would have been much better as just friends.

I liked the artwork in this book! It’s colorful and moody with wonderful artistic flare. It brings a lot of emotion to each page.
