Twelve-year-old Trout St. Kroix has been searching for his missing father for the last two years, after his dad disappeared while fighting in the Bot Wars. The Bot Wars began after robots became so advanced that they revolted and demanded more workers' rights, causing the government to declare all robots terrorists and ban them from the Districts. Trout never questioned anything the government told him--even when his own nanny bot was banished--until a vid he posts about his missing dad goes viral and new information pops up. At first Trout is wrenched his dad might be alive, but when his brother disappears, Trout learns nothing is what it seems . . . not even his own father.

Percy Jackson meets Transformers in this heart-stopping, futuristic adventure that will make you question everything you know--and look at robots in a whole new light.

        Trout and Po St. Kroix (those aren't their real names) live by themselves. Their mother died in a car accident and their father went to fight in the BOT WARS and hasn't returned. His I.D. chip hasn't showed up online, and it starts to worry Trout. The U.S. has split into Districts and BOT WARS broke out bcuz bots became advanced and they started to outnumber humans. Trout posts a video on the web asking if anyone had seen his dad, and soon, reporters come running to his house. Po gets upset for some reason, and one day he leaves and doesn't come back. Soon after he is missing too. Trout gets a call from him, and Po tells him to run bcuz the police are after him. He doesn't know why he's running or where his father is. Will he ever get his family back together? So AWESOME! U'll hafta read the rest... :)

          Bot Wars is an amazing book with amazing writing. This is a science fiction book based on imaginary creatures. Even if you don't enjoy science fiction, you will still love this book. This book makes the reader want to keep reading until it ends. I hope that you will read this incredible book!
