Ever had to work with someone that didn’t quite work with you?
In this book, we meet Evelyn, a girl in eighth grade, who has just been disqualified from a robotics contest she so badly wanted to win, while still struggling over her best friend moving away. And Allie, an artist who is now in the principal’s office for the fifth time due to an anger outburst. If Allie gets kicked out of another class, she will be sent to Sunrise Junior High, a school for flunk-outs. Allie gets placed in Robotics for a last chance elective, while Evelyn is learning that she has to let her other team members work on stuff, she can’t do it alone.
Only problem is, Evelyn’s teammates keep slacking off, and Allie keeps going to hide and draw. When news comes out that their Robotics class may be shut down due to lack of students, it becomes clear that these two are going to learn how to work together if they ever want to do well at this competition!
Overall, not my favorite book, but not bad either. I recommend this book for ages 12 and up.
