Year 13, Book 48

48. Tell the Machine Goodnight by Katie Williams

Pearl is a happiness technician. Her job is use a machine that has been created to tell people of a few things they can do in their lives that will make them happy. Yet she can’t make the one person she cares about the most, her son who struggles with an eating disorder, happy. This book seemed to have some interesting ideas, but ultimately it didn’t seem to go anywhere. It seemed like it built toward nothing. The premise was interesting, but the execution was sadly lacking. I give it a 5 out of 10.
