You will hardly believe the lengths that he and Hope will go to in order to collect the parts Drew needs to build his creation! When the word gets out about his important invention, greedy criminals start coming out of the woodwork to try to steal the robot for purely financial reasons.
This is a wonderful story about the bravery and creativity of Drew, Hope and Drew’s younger brother, and how they come up with brilliant plans to outsmart the villains
I would recommend this fun and inspiring book to any young person interested in robotics OR who just wants to have fun reading a terrific book!
A review by Author Chap Harper
Cara Brookins takes us back to our early teens years where school grounds are battlefields infested with bullies and the technically advanced kids are easy targets. Drew is a thirteen year old geek who has built an advanced robot that uses a revolutionary propulsion system. It catches the attention of some bad guys who want to steal his robot Sticky and exploit his invention for their own profit. Drew's friend Hope is a rich Hispanic girl that finds herself alone much of the time since her parents seem to always be off working someplace. Drew recruits her to go dumpster diving to salvage electronics and discarded solar panels for use in transforming Sticky into an remarkable Robot well beyond anything a child would call a toy. As the word gets out that this advanced robot exists, then a group of thieves attempt to steal it. The story builds to an exciting conclusion that contains the use of home made weapons that are used on the bad guys to try and stop them. The story also contrasts the normal family atmosphere of a working family who experiences the chaos of four kids and a stay at home mom to that of a wealthy family that seem to be work-a-holics with very little time to spend with their only child. The story moves at a very good pace and seems to build while also securing and binding relationships within families and friends. The book made me want to be a kid again.
