    "Seventeen-year old Matthew Munson's a high school dropout, doing little with his time but playing an outdated video game called Bash Bash Revolution and hanging around Dairy Queen with his girlfriend Sally. That is, until his missing dad turns up. Jeffrey Munson is a computer geek who'd left home when Matthew was young to work on a top-secret government AI project, and has been a sporadic presence in his son's life. Now he's back, but as Matthew reluctantly begins to let him back into his life, his son will discover the true nature, and the shocking goal, of the artifical intelligence his father helped to create. Told as a series of social media posts, including some between Matthew and the mysterious AI itself, Bash Bash Revolution is a wildly original novel of apocalypse and revolution, as well as a poignant story of a broken family"--from back cover.
