When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. Why is she there? Where did she come from? Most important, how will she survive in her harsh surroundings? Roz's only hope is to learn from the island's hostile animal inhabitants. When she tries to care for an orphaned gosling, the other animals finally decide to help, and the island starts to feel like home. Until one day, the robot's mysterious past comes back to haunt her. Heartwarming and full of action, Peter Brown's middle grade debut raises thought provoking questions about the environment, the role technology plays in our world, and what it means to be alive.

What a pleasure! I randomly picked this book and am so glad I did. I loved the narrator's voices and the story develops perfectly, while keeping you interested the whole way. It is charming, sweet and passes on great morals + lessons. I will be buying the printed version for my kids to read!

The print edition has illustrations; this audio version is visceral in experience. You are THERE with the characters in this story. I found the ending difficult, younger kids might too.

Very cute! For those kids who are curious about technology and robots and how they adapt to the world.
