Len Vlahos - Hard Wired

A High Stakes Tale That Explores Big Questions About What It Means to Be Human, a Young Adult Science Fiction Book Talk & Signing


Len Vlahos, owner of Tattered Cover Book Store, is the author of Life in a Fishbowl, as well as The Scar Boys, a William C. Morris Award finalist and a #1 Indie Next pick, and Scar Girl. He will discuss and sign Hard Wired ($17.99 Bloomsbury YA), a grounded sci-fi story about a boy who's more than human, perfect for fans of Westworld and LIFEL1K3.

Quinn thinks he's a normal fifteen year-old, but a shocking secret brings his entire world crashing down: he's not a boy. He's artificial intelligence. He's the QUantum INtelligence Project, the first fully-aware A.I. in the world--part of a grand multi-billion-dollar experiment led by the very man he believed to be his dead father. But as Quinn encounters the real world for the first time, his life becomes a nightmare. While the scientists continue to experiment on him, Quinn must come to grips with the truth: his mom and brother don't exist. His friends are all adults who were paid to hang out with him. Even other super computers aren't like him. As Quinn explores what it means to truly live, he questions who he can trust in this unputdownable, high stakes tale that explores big questions about what it means to be human.
