One new brother—assembly required. A “page-turner filled with fun, intrigue, and suspense” (Kirkus Reviews) from the author of The Last Invisible Boy.

Matt Rambeau is officially a big brother—to a robot! Matt’s super-computer-genius dad is always getting cool tech stuff in the mail, but the latest box Matt opens contains the most impressive thing he’s ever seen: a bionically modified lifeform that looks human and calls Matt “brother” (in French)!

Norman turns out to be a bit of an attention hog and a showoff, but Matt’s still psyched to have a robotic sibling—even if he flirts with (ugh) girls. Then strange things start to happen. First a computer worm causes Norman to go berserk, and then odd men start showing up in unusual places. Matt soon realizes that someone is trying to steal the robot—correction—his brother!

In this zany, action-packed story with spies, skateboards, and plenty of artificial intelligence, acclaimed author Evan Kuhlman gets to the heart (and motherboard) of one of the most special relationships known to man (or machine): brotherhood.

But my dumb dad . . . “These pancakes are out of this world!” he said. “Best I’ve ever had, by a mile.” He quickly caught his goof-up. “I mean the best I’ve had since Connie made pancakes a few weeks ago.” “Nice try,” Mom said. “But . . .” And here

An hour later Norman and I were at the bus stop, waiting for the bus. “I believe that Maman was pleased with breakfast,” the robot said, blinking. “Yep,” I said. “Plus, I think she liked that you cleaned all the dishes and pots and pans. You’re better at that kind of thing than I am.” “Ah, but it is not difficult to change your behavior, Matt. If you make a mess, you clean it up.” “I guess,” I said, not too

“But if we were all afraid of change to the point that fear crippled us, we’d still be fish swimming in an unchangeable sea.” Well, that made sense. Smart guy, my dad. He disconnected Norman from the monitor and immediately put him in sleep mode. “Norman should rest for a while. He’s had a rough couple days.” “But he’s okay now? No more worm?” “From a programming and structural standpoint, yes, Norman is perfectly fine,” Dad said. “But the worm caused profound changes. When Norman first

But it showed only an empty room. “Mon dieu,” Norman said. “What happened to my uncle and my cousin? Who are those awful men?” Dad jumped up. “Okay, we’re not going to panic, but we have to get out of here immediately.” He took both of our arms and steered us toward the door. “Whoever those people
