Description: Seventeen-year old Matthew Munson's a high school dropout, doing little with his time but playing an outdated video game called Bash Bash Revolution and hanging around Dairy Queen with his girlfriend Sally. That is, until his missing dad turns up. Jeffrey Munson is a computer geek who'd left home when Matthew was young to work on a top-secret government AI project, and has been a sporadic presence in his son's life. Now he's back, but as Matthew reluctantly begins to let him back into his life, his son will discover the true nature, and the shocking goal, of the artifical intelligence his father helped to create. Told as a series of social media posts, including some between Matthew and the mysterious AI itself, Bash Bash Revolution is a wildly original novel of apocalypse and revolution, as well as a poignant story of a broken family.

But the blaze killed his mom and set his dad on a path to self-destruction. Everything else about that fateful night is full of gaping holes in Theo's mind, for good reason. Maybe it's better that way. As captain of the Ellis Hollow diving team, with straight As and solid friends, he's only one semester away from securing a scholarship and leaving his past behind. But when a family history project gets assigned at school, new memories come rushing to the surface, memories that make Theo question what he really knows about his family, the night of the fire, and if he can trust anything - including his own mind.
