Poderosamente relevante e imposible de dejar de leer, Algo absolutamente extraordinario trata grandes temas de actualidad como las redes sociales, la radicalización de los discursos y la deshumanización que conlleva la fama.

La vida de April May nunca volverá a ser la misma. Volviendo a casa a las tres de la mañana, April se encontró con una escultura gigante, sobre la que colgó un vídeo. Ahora los Carls, las misteriosas estatuas que aparecen y desaparecen en el mundo entero, se han hecho virales, y April May con ellas.

¿Será esta su oportunidad para dejar huella en el mundo? April pronto descubrirá las consecuencias que toda esta atención conlleva, y que el mundo haya depositado en ella la responsabilidad de averiguar qué son los Carls y, sobre todo# qué quieren de nosotros.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"Sparkling with mystery, humor and the uncanny, this is a fun read. But beneath its effervescent tone, more complex themes are at play." --San Francisco Chronicle

In his wildly entertaining debut novel, Hank Green--cocreator of Crash Course, Vlogbrothers, and SciShow--spins a sweeping, cinematic tale about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realizing she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have possibly imagined.

The Carls just appeared.
 
Roaming through New York City at three a.m., twenty-three-year-old April May stumbles across a giant sculpture. Delighted by its appearance and craftsmanship--like a ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor--April and her best friend, Andy, make a video with it, which Andy uploads to YouTube. The next day, April wakes up to a viral video and a new life. News quickly spreads that there are Carls in dozens of cities around the world--from Beijing to Buenos Aires--and April, as their first documentarian, finds herself at the center of an intense international media spotlight.
 
Seizing the opportunity to make her mark on the world, April now has to deal with the consequences her new particular brand of fame has on her relationships, her safety, and her own identity. And all eyes are on April to figure out not just what the Carls are, but what they want from us.
 
Compulsively entertaining and powerfully relevant, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing grapples with big themes, including how the social internet is changing fame, rhetoric, and radicalization; how our culture deals with fear and uncertainty; and how vilification and adoration spring for the same dehumanization that follows a life in the public eye. The beginning of an exciting fiction career, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is a bold and insightful novel of now.
