Holly Farb and the Princess of the Galaxy by Gareth Wronski (5 out of 5)

This kids year 8 novel was a hoot and holler. As some of you know, if space, robots, and odd things are happening, I am in 100% as far as reading goes. This charming little escape isn’t out until 6-6-2017 (per the advance) and is being brought to your planetary reading orbit by Aladdin, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. I would recommend it highly to anyone who likes space, robots, and fun. It is full of all three. 

Automatic Silicone (those first two words brought to mind anatomically blessed mannequins and a lot of giggles) Transistor Robot OS-78 is our narrator. I had a stilted autonomous voice in my head as I read the book. He brings us the story of Holly, a girl kidnapped by space pirates when they mistake her for the “Princess of the Galaxy”. Her teacher Mr. Mendez and the ever annoying Chester end up hurtling through space with her, and she tries to get home through insurmountable obstacles like bounty hunters and giant worms. Who is the real Princess of the Galaxy? How does Holly get brought into this whole big bang? It’s a fun ride, brought to us by that unemotional Android 0S-78. I swear, they could really make an animated feature out of this, if not a Nick show. I was entertained through the whole book, and laughing out loud a good portion. We all need more books like this right now, in this wildly off-tilt world we’re in. I would also advise you to put this on your TBR list for June. Now. Your kids will love you for it.
