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. As they each get further down
their own paths, a series of clues arrive-mysterious books that seem to
predict the future and control the actions of their readers; unexplained
internet outages; and more-which seem to suggest April may be very much
alive. In the midst of the gang's possible reunion is a growing force,
something that wants to capture our consciousness and even control our
reality. A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor is the bold and brilliant follow-up
to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. It's a fast-paced adventure that is also
a biting social commentary, asking hard, urgent questions. How will we live
online? What powers over our lives are we giving away for free? Who has the
right to change the world forever? And how do we find comfort in an
increasingly isolated world?--
