Staff Pick

How To Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford

There's one thing that Bea Szabo knows for sure: she and Jonah Tate aren't just friends.

But they're not boyfriend-and-girlfriend either.

She thinks.

I loved how real Bea and Jonah's relationship was -- no happily-ever-after endings here, and definitely no Prince Charmings. Their friendship is so offbeat, from how they treat each other to the things they do: calling into a late-night radio show, re-creating scenes from famous movies, attending "Parties for the People of the Future," and following clues that could unearth a secret from Jonah's past. With these two, anything goes... right up until the end.

Quirky, funny, suspenseful, and heartbreaking at times, How To Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford is a perfect love story for people who hate love stories. (reviewed by: Melissa)
