Jim doesn’t want to be his best friend Oliver’s assistant again. Instead he decides to pick a girl named Rocky to be his partner over Oliver. After they decide to study otters, they go down to a nearby junkyard by the river to place cameras to see if they could watch the otters from their cameras. In the meantime, Oliver gets stuck with the scariest kid in the grade, Dmitri, as his partner. Keep reading as Rocky, Dmitri, Oliver and Jim go through a rollercoaster of friendship, romance, and betrayal in The Winter of The Robots.
I thought the book was interesting and kept me engaged with the characters, the storyline and the overall adventure. The author, Kurtis Scaletta, was able to add just enough suspense and mystery to keep me on my toes. As I read through the book, it just kept getting more and more exciting with all of the new people and events in the story; such as when Rocky and Jim discover the evil junkyard on half street, or when you meet Dmitri. I would recommend this book for ages 10 and up, because there are a couple serious moments in the story and the main characters are in seventh grade. The Winter of The Robots was a good book to pick up and read at any time of the day, and the pages flew by.
