Robot Girl Review

Featured Books for 11+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers General Fiction

Interest Age 8-12 Reading Age 8+  When it comes to writing involving, thought-provoking page-turners, Malorie Blackman is unbeatable. In this short novel in Barrington Stoke’s dyslexia-friendly format, she’s returns to one of her favourite themes and turns the readers’ perception of themselves upside-down. Claire’s father is a scientist and she resents the amount of time he spends at work. He seems to care more about his new project than he does about his daughter. When Claire finally gets to see what he’s been working on the shock prompts her to take violent action. There are shades of Frankenstein in this gripping futuristic thriller and a final twist that leaves readers with lots to think about. ~ Andrea Reece
