Some people might think a robot can’t be a real brother. Those same people probably think an imaginary cat can’t write their own blog. Obviously, they’d be wrong on both counts.
For Operation Story Share today I’m recommending Brother From a Box by Evan Kuhlman. Here’s what the inside cover says:
When a shipping crate from France arrives at Matt’s apartment, the Rambeau family expands by one. Just some quick assembly, and Norman is ready for action!
But like anything having to do with family, the robot brother is both a blessing and a curse. And when strange things start to happen, Matt feels protective of this pile of bolts. Someone is trying to steal the robot! Correction: Someone is trying to steal Matt’s brother!
In this zany action-packed adventure with international espionage and skateboards—and, yes, robots!—acclaimed author Evan Kulhman gets to the heart (or motherboard) of what it truly means to be brothers, even if one is a machine.
Or as Norman calls himself: an artificial, genetically enhanced, cybernetically integrated, bionically modified life-form. Brother From a Box by Evan Kulhman is full of quirkiness, intrigue and suspense. I give it two paws up!
