Cora, a young autistic girl befriends Adrien, a boy with ADHD, and they begin to uncover dark secrets at his father's high-tech business, the Pomegranate Institute. When Cora's brother drags her along to his boss's house, she doesn't expect to strike up a friendship with Adrien, son of the intimidating CEO of Pomegranate Technologies. As she becomes part of Adrien's life, she is also drawn into the mysterious projects at Pomegranate. At first, she's intrigued by them - Pomegranate is using AI to recreate real people in hologram form. As she digs deeper, however, she uncovers darker secrets... Cora knows she must unravel their plans, but can she fight to make her voice heard, whilst never losing sight of herself?

I think this book was really good and it sends a good message, I really like the storyline and overall the book is really good, One of my favourites so far.

Grace - Outwood Academy Kirkby - 2022

A very good book. I like how Cora stands up for herself in the end and doesn't let Dr Gold get away with what she had done. I also like how she is doing it all for Adrien which shows how much of a true friend she really is.

Evie - Rushcliffe Spencer Academy - 2022

I loved reading this book. It has a really good and inspiring moral.

Rosa - Rushcliffe Spencer Academy - 2022

Really interesting and emotional story. I really like the fact that the main character had autism as that's quite unusual. I really enjoyed it and it is a definite contender.

Sophie - Rushcliffe Spencer Academy - 2022


Lizzie - Nottingham Girls High School - 2022

I loved this book! I really liked the moral message of the book - that no matter who you are, you're still perfect.

Alexander - Rushcliffe Spencer Academy - 2022

A really good book about a girl called Cora who has autism and a boy called Adríen who has ADHD. I thoroughly enjoyed their conversations together about Adrien’s dad's company, Pomegranate. I enjoyed the drama with the British Museum and the car. One thing to improve though (in my opinion) is to talk about Adríen and Cora for a bit longer at the end of the book

I loved this book and how it is futuristic.

This was really good and the type of book I like to read. The only thing that wasn't so good was that it all turned out OK in the end.

Varshna - Nottingham Girls High School - 2022

I enjoyed how supportive Adrian was to Cora and boosted her self-confidence. I think the plot twists helped and made the book so much more interesting than it already was. It was very different to what I have read before so I am glad that I got to read it.
