What is it about?

April May becomes an overnight YouTube sensation when she is the first to post a video involving “Carl”, a huge sculpture that appeared out of nowhere. It turns out that “Carls” have appeared all over the world and nobody knows what they are and how they got there. 

Was it good?

I finally figured out why I tend to not like first person narratives, and that is because a lot of them just sound like a long list. 

This book did not feel like that. I really enjoyed the story and the narration. Even though the main character went out of her way to be unlikeable, I really liked all the characters. I thought that the progression of the story was entirely believable and interesting.

The cliffhanger was top notch, too. I definitely need to find out what is going to happen!
