Evelyn strives for excellence. Allie couldn’t care less. These polar opposites must work together if they have any hope of saving their school’s robotics program.

Eighth-graders Evelyn and Allie are in trouble. Evelyn’s constant need for perfection has blown some fuses among her robotics teammates, and she’s worried nobody’s taking the upcoming competition seriously. Allie is new to school, and she’s had a history of short-circuiting on teachers and other kids.

So when Allie is assigned to the robotics team as a last resort, all Evelyn can see is just another wrench in the works! But as Allie confronts a past stricken with grief and learns to open up, the gears click into place as she discovers that Evelyn’s teammates have a lot to offer—if only Evelyn allowed them to participate in a role that plays to their strengths.

Can Evelyn learn to let go and listen to what Allie has to say? Or will their spot in the competition go up in smoke along with their school’s robotics program and Allie’s only chance at redemption?

An excellent pick for STEAM enthusiasts, this earnestly told narrative features a dual point of view and casually explores Autistic and LGBTQ+ identities.

Reviews:

“Full of girl power without ever showing them as outsiders in robotics because of their gender, this brings a diverse team to the page and shows the various skills needed to make a team succeed.”—Booklist

“Unsubtle but not overwrought, with genuinely inspiring kindness and collaboration found amid pain.”—Kirkus Reviews

 

 

My Review

🌕🌕🌕🌕🌕

Yay! An absolute joy to read. The diversity of the representation was great. Autism, gay/bi, perfectionists, troublemakers and loners. I've always found robotics extremely interesting, however, I've never been able to accomplish much in that area. The dual POV was not only needed for this story, but was done seamlessly. Evelyn and Allie couldn't be more different. Both characters are relatable and believable. The writing style was easy to navigate, but still relevant for all ages, adults included. Michelle did an amazing job at pulling on my emotions. Overall a phenomenal read that I think should be a requirement in school.

Huge thanks to Rockstar Book Tours, Peachtree and Michelle for my gifted copy!
