SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am hosting Constance Roberts on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Constance Roberts is a retired flight attendant who turned in her wings to stay at home with her adventurous daughter and to write. She and her husband live in St. Louis, Missouri where they spend the weekends playing board games with friends. If she’s not reading a book, she’s probably taking a picture of it. You can find her book photography on Instagram as @imagery.in.pages
WHAT IF PINOCCHIO WAS A GIRL?
Just before senior year, Penny’s car was struck by a drunk driver. Her body was beyond repair, but her mind was saved by a powerful benefactor attempting to blur the moral lines between medical science and technology.
Penny now lives as an Automa alongside others whose consciousnesses were uploaded into elite cyborgs. Together they work and perform at the prestigious Monstro Theater in Amsterdam. Though she is forbidden to leave the theater for ten years, Penny is granted every luxury her heart desires. Any skill or information she wishes can be downloaded in seconds – except the precious memories of her life before.
Despite longing for knowledge of her past, Penny makes the most of her confinement with her new companions. After an outsider exposes the truth, Penny realizes she’s been strung up in a web of lies. She wants to trust what she feels she’s known all along, but doing so would force her to face an impossible choice.When the truth catches up, it doesn’t let go without a fight.
Music is a big part of Penny’s story. She is an Automa, which means her consciousness lives inside a high-tech robot. She looks just like you and me, but she lacks senses such as smell and taste. She lives along side other Automas who work as performers in Monstro Theater. Many of the songs on this playlist are actually mentioned in the book, as songs they have performed to or happen to be playing during a scene. Just for fun, I’ve listed a few below.
Build The Robots by Dr. Steel – This is the first song on the playlist because, well, it’s a fun song about Robots. Dr. Steel is an artist from the early 2000’s who incorporated steampunk sounds into his music and this song just fit as an opener for the story.
Lampshades On Fire by Modest Mouse – Penny and her dance troupe are rehearsing this number in the first scene of the book. In the performance they are dancing around an airship, about to embark on a new world.
Bury A Friend by Billie Eilish – I love this song because with it’s sharp sounds and whispered lyrics it really illustrates Penny’s struggle with figuring out who she is (since she can’t remember) and where she fits in this new body and new life.
Telephone by Lady Gaga – Penny and her best Automa friend, Cleo, kill this song on karaoke.
Tessellate by Alt-J – This song is very much the “mood” for the love story in STRUNG. I won’t say much else so I don’t give anything away.
Don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, Constance Roberts
