Can a robot survive in the wilderness?

When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is--but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island's unwelcoming animal inhabitants.

As Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home--until, one day, the robot's mysterious past comes back to haunt her.

From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Peter Brown comes a heartwarming and action-packed novel about what happens when nature and technology collide.

      This book was really, really good. Roz is a robot that got shipwrecked on an island and was activated by a group of playful otters. Roz didn't waste a minute trying to befriend all the animals. All the animals were scared of her, however, because she was a robot. But being a robot, that didn't discourage her. Instead she tried camouflaging, and was rewarded with learning the animal language. Upon accident she ends up adopting a gosling, which changes her life. The gosling (Brightbill) also helps the other animals warm up to her. I liked this book better then its sequel. The first few chapters of the book were a bit un-interesting and dull, but the book becomes really addicting after that. Before you know it, you're done and buying the second book! I like how they made Roz a robot. I feel like if Roz was a human, things would've gone differently, and I wouldn't have liked the story as much. My favorite part was around the middle when she met all the animals. The ending was a cliffhanger(not a bad one), and made you want to read more! I would recommend this book for 6+, people who like adventure, animals, and overall just a good book.

                  This book has a sort of sad ending. I think this is by the same author as Pax, which also does.
