Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning young adult author Andrew Smith, who will sign and discuss his new novel, Rabbit & Robot!
Told with Andrew Smith’s signature dark humor, Rabbit & Robot tells the story of Cager Messer, a boy who’s stranded on his father’s lunar-cruise utopia with insane robots. Cager has been transported to the Tennessee, a giant lunar-cruise ship orbiting the moon that his dad owns, by Billy and Rowan to help him shake his Woz addiction. Meanwhile, Earth, in the midst of thirty simultaneous wars, burns to ash beneath them. And as the robots on board become increasingly insane and cannibalistic, and the Earth becomes a toxic wasteland, the boys have to wonder if they’ll be stranded alone in space forever. In his new novel, Andrew Smith, Printz Honor author of Grasshopper Jungle, will make you laugh, cry, and consider what it really means to be human.
"Those delving into Smith's zany dystopia will find much to laugh and gasp at...But most of all, they will find many deep, essential questions worth pondering."
