Synopses & Reviews
The story of an extraordinary robot that signs up for an ordinary fifth grade class and changes elementary school forever is now in paperback!
It’s never easy for Sammy Hayes-Rodriguez to fit in, so he’s dreading the day when his genius mom insists he bring her newest invention to school: a robot he calls E–for "Error." E not only thinks he’s Sammy’s brother… he’s actually even nerdier than Sammy. Will E be Sammy’s one-way ticket to Loserville? Or will he prove to the world that it’s cool to be square?
"A good fit for reluctant readers." CommonSenseMedia.org
"Underlying the novel's laughs are themes of friendship, compassion, and family, particularly in regard to Sammy's devotion to his younger sister...and his deepening relationship with his 'bro-bot.'" Publishers Weekly
