From the author of dystopian tour de force Feed comes a soon-to-be literary classic that will resonate with young adults and adults alike. When the vuvv first landed, it came as a surprise to aspiring artist Adam and the rest of planet Earth - but not necessarily an unwelcome one. Can it really be called an invasion when the vuvv generously offered free advanced technology and cures for every illness imaginable? As it turns out, yes. With his parents' jobs replaced by alien tech and no money for food, clean water, or the vuvv's miraculous medicine, Adam and his girlfriend, Chloe, have to get creative to survive. And since the vuvv crave anything they deem "classic" Earth culture, recording 1950s-style dates for them to watch in a pay-per-minute format seems like a brilliant idea. But it's hard for Adam and Chloe to sell true love when they hate each other more with every passing episode. Soon enough, Adam must decide how far he's willing to go - and what he's willing to sacrifice - to give the vuvv what they want.

Review:

"This is an intelligent, tightly written and sharply observed satire of contemporary America told with wry humour and deadpan wit. Adam, flawed, vulnerable and courageous makes an excellent protagonist with whom we can identify and the novel raises thought provoking questions about the nature of society, equality and justice." * The School Librarian * "..a savage science-fiction satire from MT Anderson... Mordant and meditative, Anderson's writing intertwines social satire with ideas of despair, hope and the nature of art." * Financial Times * Featured/recommended with cover reveal * Publishers Weekly *
