TaraShea Nesbit recommends
"A heart-palpitating story of womanhood, ambition, and scientific inquiry. Lottie, the main character, longs for what we all long for: well-being, connection, and the ability to pursue our capacities, in a world that sometimes tries to dampen desire, particularly the wants of women. I found Artifact to be thrilling, funny, evocative, and true."
