How To Say Goodbye In Robot





by Natalie Standiford

Summary: New to town, Beatrice is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet loner who hasn't made a new friend since third grade. Something about him, though, gets to Bea, and soon they form an unexpected friendship. It's not romance, exactly - but it's definitely love. Still, Bea can't quite dispel Jonah's gloom and doom - and as she finds out his family history, she understands why. Can Bea help Jonah? Or is he destined to vanish?

My Thoughts: Well, this book is not normally what I would read for the simple fact that there is little to no romance in this book and it is not classified as paranormal either. Yes, I would say there is a type of love but its more the deep down love that isn't shown by passionate kisses or makeout sessions. Its more about the feel good feelings. I think this was a good book, just not enough romance for me! haha! If your not into the mushy stuff than this is probably the perfect book for you. It has life lessons and it actually does have a plot. We get to know the characters and I especially liked the girl, whose name was Beatrice. If your a Beverly Cleary fan like I was as a kid, you get the significance of her name to me. I also did like Jonah, aka ghost boy. If your a fan of late night radio, than this is also a really sweet book. If you want a book that is more about lessons than read this one!


Overall: A good book with a moral to the story. If your not into mushy stuff, read this. If you like books that are more about the character development and learning about the past of the characters this is for you.

Cover: I love the cover. Its hot pink if you can't tell. hehe. Definitely a girly cover but this book is good for boys too. I also like the phone on it. Very pretty.
