A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor

£8.99

The Carls disappeared the same way they appeared, in an instant. While they were on Earth, they caused confusion and destruction without ever lifting a finger. Well, that’s not exactly true. Part of their maelstrom was the sudden viral fame and untimely death of April May: a young woman who stumbled into Carl’s path, giving them their name, becoming their advocate, and putting herself in the middle of an avalanche of conspiracy theories. Months later, the world is as confused as ever. Andy has picked up April’s mantle of fame, speaking at conferences and online about the world post-Carl; Maya, ravaged by grief, begins to follow a string of mysteries that she is convinced will lead her to April; and Miranda infiltrates a new scientific operation – one that might have repercussions beyond anyone’s comprehension.

‘A raucous, boldly inventive tale’ BOOKLIST

‘Provides a “Black Mirror”-like warning of new technology without the heavy feeling of dread’ USA TODAY

The magnificent sequel to Hank Green’s #1 New York Times bestselling debut novel, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing

The statues disappeared in an instant. While they were on Earth, they caused confusion and destruction without ever lifting a finger. They also contributed to the untimely death of April May: a young woman who stumbled into their path, naming them the Carls and gaining viral fame in an avalanche of conspiracy theories.

When April’s friends try to carry on with their lives, a series of clues arrive – mysterious books that seem to predict the future – and which also seem to suggest April may be very much alive . . . But there’s a bigger mystery to solve.

Did the Carls ever really leave us, and what happens if they’re here to stay?

A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor is a bold and brilliant conclusion that asks whether anyone has the right to change the world.
