GIRL PARTS by John M. Cusick
A company called Sakora has created a unique product. They have a line of "companions" designed to provide healthy relationship training for teenage males.
Rose is one of the latest models available, and she has been prescribed for a young man named David Sun. David's school counselor has indicated that he suffers from a condition known as "dissociative disorder." Rose is the answer to treating this condition.
David is captivated by her perfect body and her flowing red hair. She is polite and soft spoken and gently reminds him that they will need to develop a trusting relationship before any intimacy can be expected. The time they spend together is so different than what David is used to, that he willingly takes things one step at a time. She is all he can think about while he is at school, and his friends are surprised when he spends most of his free time in her company instead of carousing with them.
The more they get to know one another, the more natural Rose becomes. As far as David is concerned, she is the perfect girlfriend. However, as their relationship advances to touching and kissing, David discovers Rose is hiding a secret. When the secret is reveal, David sees it as a cruel joke and he dumps Rose. The sudden loss of connection with David is more than Rose's circuits can handle, and her reaction nearly causes her destruction.
As the story continues, another confused young man named Charlie becomes involved with Rose. Readers are then in for one complication after another. This page-turner by John M. Cusick explores relationships and sexuality and how far our society might go in an attempt to create perfection. This one will leave readers with a lot to think about.
