Other Bodies By Joel Ohman


Other Bodies By Joel Ohman; In a world where immersive VR suits distort what is real from what is not, and the AI Personhood Act blurs the lines between body and bot, the choices sixteen-year-old Hattie Martins faces are very personal. Welcome to Hattie Martins' dystopian Philadelphia, where everything is not as it seems. Just as her life is looking up--a new job, new friends, a new date; Hattie discovers not all progress in her beloved, futuristic Philadelphia is for the best. Societal regrets can become personal regrets in an instant. Choices don't always come with second chances, and when they do the cost can be unimaginable. How far will she go to undo her greatest regret? And worse yet, what will she become if it's too late? 
In a world where bots are equal to bodies, what does it mean to be alive? 
What is real? Which bodies matter? What about the other bodies?

My Opinion: This book has a ton of twists and turns with the topic of abortion and what happens if you decided later that it was the wrong decision. Makes you think about what would be the right thing/ think about to do even if it is controversial.
