Robots Running Wild

Andrew Parker

Robots are bombing buildings.


Wham! Mary and Tommy can’t walk after a car crash so Uncle Frank gives them robots. They sit at their computers and control the big machines that attend sixth grade in their place.

That soon gets boring so they send the robots exploring. Right off they spot a purse snatcher and chase him down. The next day their robots stop a bank robbery. They take bullies to the principal, rescue a lady trapped under a car, and even collect money for a homeless friend.

However, Mary and Tommy face their greatest challenge when a lunatic starts using robots to blow up buildings.

ROBOTS RUNNING WILD is a 75,000-word young adult novel that explores alcoholism, helping others, homelessness, bullying, infidelity, rage, and many other such issues.

Pitch looks excellent. I checked, though, and this is a novelette---7,500 - 20,000 words---not a novella. It's considered too long for most magazines, yet too short for a novel. Generally, four novelettes are pieced together into a compilation novel. view book

CLOG review 2 of 43 Primrose Avenue by Michelle Richardson I’ve read all ten chapters now. This book is well written and if you like old English novels, if you like books that are rustic, folksy, and warm, then this is the book for you.
