One new brother—assembly required. A “page-turner filled with fun, intrigue, and suspense” (Kirkus Reviews)from the author of The Last Invisible Boy.
Matt Rambeau is officially a big brother—to a robot! When a shipping crate from France shows up at Matt’s building, the last thing he expects to find inside is an artificial, genetically-enhanced, cybernetically-integrated, bionically-modified lifeform—okay that’s only half true (because Matt’s dad is a super computer genius and interesting computer stuff is always showing up). The real last thing Matt expected to find inside is a human-looking robot that calls him “frère” (brother in French) and acts like a person (only perfect at everything). Some quick assembly, and a robot brother is born!
Like anything having to do with family, it’s a blessing and a curse. Norman is a fame hog and a showoff…plus he flirts with girls (yuck), but, hey, he’s family and Matt’s become pretty attached. Then strange things start to happen. First a computer worm causes Norman to go goes berserk, and then odd men start showing up in unusual places. Someone is trying to steal this robot. Correction: someone is trying to steal Matt’s brother!
In this zany, action-packed story with spies and skateboard and, yes, robots! acclaimed author Evan Kuhlman gets to the heart (and motherboard) of one of the most special relationships known to man (or robot): BROTHERHOOD.
