M. T. Anderson is the author of several critically acclaimed young adult novels including Burger Wuss and Thirsty. He lives in Massachusetts, USA.
Award-winning author M. T. Anderson explores themes of art, truth and colonization in this sharply wrought satire of a future Earth. 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.
