Have you ever wished you lived in the future with a robot dog for a pet? Or had adventures that led to the long-forgotten under-realms of Hollywood where cast off sets and props take on a life of their own? Or have you ever wished you would suddenly wake up from amnesia and remember that you were someone famous, maybe a pirate?
Book Review: How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford
Beatrice has lived all over the country. She and her mother follow her father as he strives for academic excellence as a university professor. She has learned not to get too attached to the kids at each school. That only makes it harder to leave, so she tells herself not to care. One year and she's off to college anyway...until she meets Jonah. Everyone else may call him Ghost Boy, but her own mother calls her a robot.
