In the Lives of Puppets by T.J. Klune

In the Lives of Puppets was an enjoyable, heartwarming and often hilarious read. I quickly became enamoured with the characters and the unfolding story which I can only describe as Terminator meets Pinocchio.

I would highly recommend this novel for anyone yearning for a queer sci-fi/fantasy story about the redemptive power of love and the joy of found family. TJ Klune scores bonus points for his zany sidekick characters, including a naive Rose Nyland-esque vacuum cleaner and a sociopathic robot nurse (trust me, it will all make sense once you read it). And finally, a warning - it may make you leak.
