Klara is an AI, specially created to be a child's friend. She gets picked by Josie, who is ill from being "lifted" ( genetically modified to do better at school). Klara is good at observing and studying human behavior - to support Josie, she needs to learn what love, friendship, loneliness, and sacrifice mean.
Klara also has a special relationship with the sun - she venerates it almost like a God, as the sun gives her power to exist ( solar batteries).
I loved this story very much, however, the ending was bittersweet.

Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it.
