It isn't all zeros and ones: All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders
"If you’re a science geek, people give you wedgies and don’t invite you to their parties. But if you’re a witch, everybody just assumes you’re an evil psycho. It’s kind of different.”
The possibility of the singularity meets teen witches, an eternity-old tree spirit, birds who can talk, and assassins! Grab your two-second time machine and slip into the speakeasy behind the bookcase. Aurelien and Catrina get weird at book club with "All the Birds in the Sky" by Charlie Jane Anders, a near-future, scifi, magical story of friendship and building a sentient artificial intelligence in your closet.
Theme: Magical Transition by Kevin McLeod
