      What organizationally-challenged child wouldn't love a personal robot to do all the hard stuff, like remembering what homework was due when, picking out what to wear to school, and figuring out how to keep their room clean?

      When Celia's dad builds her a robot to help her get organized and develop better habits, Celia finds that her robot is a good friend and teaches it new tricks. Robot causes quite a stir in the community and turns Celia's life upside down! Fun realistic fiction, but could have been condensed into a shorter story.

      I didn't finish this book. Same old, same old. Celia's birthday present helps Celia with stuff - yeah, yeah, yeah. We all knew Timothy was going to steal the robot. Didn't like the book. Unh uh - don't read it. I wish you could give half stars because it only deserves a half star.
