My Thoughts:This is amazing. Arky the robot is sweet and kind. He is a robot made up of scrap parts. I am sure that my son dreams of finding his own Arky one day. All the robot characters in this story are unique and fascinating.This story has a lot to offer as far as example goes. It is one of friendship, trust, overlooking differences, loyalty, strength, and acceptance. There are elements of adventure and problem solving. The robot city described in this is sure to entertain most children. I [...]

Review copy provided by NetgalleyThis book sucked me in and stole hours of sleep, something I don't get enough of as is, but I don't hold that against it because it gave me hours of pleasure in return. It was hardly typical of the fantasy genre with the overabundance of robot-like characters called Scrappers, but this was a worthwhile read in the fantasy genre.Jerome Barnes is a protagonist that comes with a lot of baggage. His mother and his younger brother, Max, died tragically in an accident [...]

Covers can be deceptive can't they? From the cover I imagined a light hearted, short romp - almost cartoonish. That is not what I got. Don't get my wrong - in the end I enjoyed it but it was 352 pages and the was arson, theft, heartbreak, and more. Not what I was expecting.While Jerome is at the town junkyard with his father and uncle he discovers Arkie - a Scrapper - a living, sentient being made of - well - junk. Arkie takes Jerome underground to his city but along the way they discover oil. O [...]

I felt like I was dealing with deaths, scrappers, and a modern day villain. I can not even imagine what Jerome is going through after the death of his mother and brother. My favorite character is Willy Videlback because he is super funny and reminds me of a [...]

Scrap City was a book I wanted to love. It had everything going for it: fascinating characters, several subplots with an overarching theme, creative and brilliant ideas, and a thorough execution. The ending of the book, in fact, was fantastic, and I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel. The creativity alone was so good that I had to give the book another star.That being said, this book had quite a few problems. This is the kind of book you read and realize that the main draft must have been full of gra [...]

Scrap City was such a cute and fun read! Very creative too. It was so hard not to enjoy. The book does boast a good 345 pages, so it may seem a little daunting to some young readers. However, I think that once they get into the story they will find themselves so immersed that they will barely come up for air until they are finished!So what is Scrap City about? It is about a young boy, Jerome, who stumbles upon something very interesting while in the scrap yard on the outskirts of his town. While [...]

There were so many things I liked about this book -- and a few things that became a little uncomfortable. I read about 80% percent of my books on an iPad, but I read this in paperback and it was wonderful! The cover art is very cool, and gives just enough of a hint to the story line. The physical dimensions are a little different, sort of small and compact but easy enough to hold open. It feels a nice and balanced in your hands, which helps to get through the whole thing -- at 345 pages, it seem [...]

An unique and creative story about junk literally coming to life. Cute. Themes of belonging and family. The girl is native American and barely a character. I really dont know why she's on the cover. But OMG the SIZE of the book! It reads fast but it is 350 pages and extremely thick. The story is interesting enough and moves at a good pace. So if they're not intimidated by the size, it should be easy to stick with it. My concern is that most won't even try it; despite the adorable cover. Since bo [...]

*I received this novel through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*This is a fun, adventurous middle grade novel. I requested it thinking it would be a fun, fast read, but I got much more than that. The children in this story are dealing with loss and heartache, among other things. It definitely Probed deeper than I was expecting. The characters were fun, original and well written. The main characters seemed their age and not too grown up, which was nice. The story was fun, the Scrapper [...]

Scrap City reminded me of a lower-grade Pixar movie; definitely not a blockbuster but certainly an enjoyable read that delivers a larger message without hitting you over the head with it. Good character development and world-building and the story moved along at a good pace despite having to explain some of the backstory. Characters are very likable (or not, as the case may be) and believable, even the non-human ones. Would have liked best friend Cici to be more involved in the story than she wa [...]

I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This book was not what I was expecting. From the cover it looked to be a kids fun book about robot people. This was so much more. Jerome finds Arkie while exploring in the scrap yard while his dad negotiates. Arkie is a scrapper, an alive being made up of scraps from the junk yard. What Jerome uncovers is a magical world, right under his own. Then something happens and Jerome has to help figure out what is go [...]

Neat story, reminds me of the movie Robots, but with people added to the world. A little bit of fantasy, loads of adventure, a little bit of heartbreak. There are lots of pages, but the book reads fast. Thanks Netgalley for the ARC!

Cute story about a boy who discovers a new world beneath a scrap yard where everything is made out of recycled materials. Great ending as the boy and a friend save the day and put the bad guys out of business. Great for lower middle grades.

Like Hugo? Then you'll like this fun read, which takes place beneath a junkyard in Texas where an entire city made of automatons live. You'll love reading about Jerome and his ice chest buddy Arkie.
