Johnson“Johnson keeps the middle school laughs going in this action-packed, accessible look at the pros and cons of advancing AI and technology, a contemporary tale certain to intrigue and entertain young readers.” - Publishers WeeklyFeatured Children's Book Selection by Kirkus ReviewsPraised by Publishers WeeklyMom’s Choice Gold AwardReaders' Favorite AwardPurple Dragonfly AwardRECOMMENDED by the US Review When Jason meets his mom’s billion-dollar invention, an artificial intelligence device named Proto, he accidentally gets caught up in a mysterious adventure. Proto goes missing, and then people go missing. Now Jason and his coolest-neighbor-ever Maya must risk their lives to prevent global mayhem. But who is behind this devious plot? Is it another AI? The FBI? Or any other abbreviation with an I? What exactly is there to learn about artificial and human intelligence while fighting for your life against a legion of furry puppies or a battalion of drones? A lot— if you live to tell about it."I have 2 sons and my younger one - he is 9 - enjoys books a lot. But only when I or my husband read it to him. THIS BOOK was so exciting and fun to read that he could not wait for us and just decided to read it on his own.He finished it within 3 days and asked me to buy more books from this author. If this is not convincing enough to buy this book then I do not know what else would be ;-) - Kindle Customer ?????
