My Mechanical Romance

We rated this book:


A forgotten assignment lands Bel in a mandatory teacher meeting. Surprisingly, the teacher is so in awe of her hastily half-way completed project that she suggests Bel enroll in the honors class and join the robotics team. Bel has no interest in either, but she has no choice if she wants to salvage her grade. As she enters the room for the robotics team tryouts, she is totally out of her comfort zone. While the team listens to plans for an egg drop to determine the newest team member, Bel draws out a design that steals the show.

Making the team is not for the faint of heart though. Teo is competitive and Bel knows nothing of the protocols, let alone the programming. However, with his experience and her creativity, working together might make their team the best team in the competition.

Similar to many YA stories set at comic cons, this one set in the world of robotics is candy for the geek mind. Add in family strife and post-secondary plan stress, and this tops the list of nerdy reads. Also writing as the author Olivie Blake (The Atlas Six), Follmuth delivers a top-notch YA rom com with a realistic ending.
