“What could possibly go wrong?”
Tim is preparing to go back to school after a dull summer, and he is hoping to catch the attention of his crush, Rachel. When a pink-haired new girl steals his wallet, Tim is determined to track her down and get it back. He never imagined she would steal his heart, too.
This was a sweet story. The general concept was interesting and engaging. And frightening. Having androids acting as workers and home staff and being considered property is awful.
I found the characters all well-developed and likable. Tim had a heart of gold and was every bit the awkward teenage boy trying to navigate his feelings. Sophie was quirky and fun; her sass was enjoyable. Jeff was a fantastic character and friend.
I loved that this story was about friendship and finding your way. The plot moved smoothly, and the sci-fi portions were explained clearly without being too heavy.
I enjoyed this story and the writing style. It is a quick and easy read.
