    1. Gadget GeeksA review by Author Chap Harper Cara Brookins takes us back to our early teens years where school grounds are battlefields infested with bullies and the technically advanced kids are easy targets.

It catches the attention of some bad guys who want to steal his robot Sticky and exploit his invention for their own profit. Drew’s friend Hope is a rich Hispanic girl that finds h [...]

    4. A fun little story about a boy who enjoys dumpster diving to create robots, a girl with distant but wealthy parents, and evading corporate scientists who want to steal their invention.
