Watchdog by Will McIntosh - OPTIONAL

McIntosh, Will Watchdog, 182 pages Delacorte (Random), 2017.  182 pages.  Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG-13 (lots of robot fighting action).

Vick and his sister Tara keep their heads low and are barely keeping life together since their father ran away and then their mother died.  Tara has autism and Vick can’t always cope with her tantrums, but he tries his best.  Tara is brilliant at designing robots, however.  When someone big and evil gets a whiff of her genius, the situation goes downhill fast.  Now Vick and Tara are on the run from the biggest baddest gang in the city.  

Reading this book was kind of like watching a battlebot competition with really cool back stories.  It did quite violent, but most of it involved the robots battling each other, not humans getting hurt.
