Show Us Who You Are by Elle McNicoll
I’m trying to pace myself, to savour every moment of this story, but I know I’ll finish it within a few days because it is just so good…
This is McNicoll’s second children’s book, following last year’s award-winning A Kind of Spark.
Read an interview with the author here, at The Reading Realm, in which McNicoll explains what the book is about:
Show Us Who You Are is a bit of a thriller, a bit of science-fiction and a love story between two best friends. It’s about 12-year old Cora and the inner workings of The Pomegranate Institute, a company who use holograms to recreate real humans, allowing them to live forever as artificially intelligent digital doubles.
