Freya has been lucky enough to get hold of a smartface, a virtual assistant which knows everything about her and will fulfill her every desire.
But there is something strange about its voice, and Freya is horrified to discover it has taken on the personality of her sister Ruby, who disappeared when they were teenagers.
It seems so alive, so real, that it is almost as though her sister might still be out there somewhere, feeding new data into ‘the cloud’. But that’s impossible, isn’t it?
This novel is what happens when smart becomes too smart.
