An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is Hank Green's debut novel and the first book in the Carl Saga, following protagonist April May after she discovers "New York Carl"-- a giant robot-like statue in the middle of NYC.

She and her best friend, Andy Skampt, along with the online fan group known as "Dreamers", race to solve the mystery of the Carls, competing against Peter Petrawicki and his online community "The Defenders" to solve the mystery of the Dream.

With a bisexual main character, a lot of background knowledge when it comes to fame, and a captivating storyline, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is a work of genius--exactly what is to be expected when it's written by a genius.
