This book club is for ages 8-14.
When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is—but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island’s unwelcoming animal inhabitants. As Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home—until, one day, the robot’s mysterious past comes back to haunt her.
Due to registration limits, we encourage adults to remain in the library but to allow their tween to attend the program alone -only if child and adult are comfortable. If an adult needs to accompany a teen, the adult must sit with the teen so as to not contribute to room capacity.
If you have any questions, please contact Julia Manning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
