    belle252's book review was featured in The Trouble with Robots.
    Robotics used to be a fun subject for Evelyn where she got to work with her team but that was until disaster struck - Naiely, Evelyn’s best friend, moved away. All eyes turned too Evelyn to lead the team, and her ability to hold the team together was challenged more than ever. Robotics was simply not fun anymore and less people participated. As for Evelyn her dreams of winning the robotics championship, proceeding to State and then Worlds are crushed. But as a new, short-tempered girl comes into town, the story takes a drastic turn. Kicked out of all the other electives, robotics is the new girl, Allie's, last hope to stay in this school. If she gets kicked out of robotics too, then she will be sent to Sunrise High School, a place for juveniles. As Evelyn needs to work on her leadership and teamwork skills to accomplish her goals, Allie needs to learn how to open up to stay in this school. Only together will they be able to help the team survive and help themselves - the question is will they both learn to work with each other in time? Or will their last hope be thrown away...

    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.
