Summary

Think twice before you share your life online.

Freya has a new virtual assistant. It knows what she likes, knows what she wants and knows whose voice she most needs to hear: her missing sister's.

It adopts her sister's personality, recreating her through a life lived online. But this virtual version of her sister knows things it shouldn't be possible to know. It's almost as if the missing girl is still out there somewhere, feeding fresh updates into the cloud. But that's impossible. Isn't it?

With twists and turns you'll never see coming, Everything About You is a thrilling debut showing a chilling vision of a future that's just around the corner. You'll never look at your privacy settings in the same way again....

The world of Everything About You is closer than you think:

  • Right now, the average child features in over 1,500 online photographs by the age of five
  • By 2025, you will interact with connected devices nearly 5,000 times per day 
  • Today there are already companies who will collect your data so that your relatives can interact with your 'digital doppelganger' after you die.

So slow and uninteresting

I got to chapter 6 before I gave up waiting for something to happen. Kate Sobey read this well. But there was a lack of progress to the story. I still don't know what the plot is.
