All stories must have a conflict. The conflict here is that the father wants nobody to find out about the robot he created. There are people who want to copy this robot and make mad cash. Needless to say that the robot is discovered and several events pursue from this point.
For students that want a good light hearted read this is your book. Nothing to bad happens, nothing violent, nothing too mean, just enough to create a nice storyline about growing up, getting noticed, and finding out who your friends are. I did feel like it took too long to get any real conflict going. I loved the idea and would love to have a robot like this for my house. It was just a little to "happy" for me. I needed something a little more severe to happen. However, not everyone thinks like me and this book could be perfect for them. Check it out!
I really enjoyed this book. Celia was a very well drawn character. I thought it was pretty cool that her hobby was picking locks. The author does an excellent job with the Chow family relationships.
I was also pleasantly surprised to discover, there's a bad guy. Another computer scientist, Mr. Fisher wants to steal Robot. When Robot goes missing Celia is determined to get, her new friend back. There were a few exciting and scary moments when Celia confronts the men who took Robot.
"I reached into Robot's body and picked out the wire connecting the locator to the big battery. Fisher had left all his tools scattered around. It was easy to find the right one to splice the wire again. It was all I could do for Robot. I longed to make it whole, but I knew it was more important to find Dad's laptop. My legs felt weak and trembly, so I steadied myself by holding the edge of the bench.
The swish of an opening door startled me. I spun around to see a tall bony man coming through the door at the back of the lab. His curly blond hair framed a face that looked as if it had been colored with white chalk, and his eyes were as blue and cold as a winter sky. He could have been handsome, but he wasn't. He looked horrible. I started to run but he was too quick."
