When robot Roz crash lands on an island, she's forced to fight for survival. The only way Roz can live is by learning about her new environment from the island's hostile animal inhabitants. But when she finds herself taking care of a baby goose, all the animals pitch in and teach Roz how to thrive in this new world. Heartwarming and full of action, Peter Brown's debut will raise thought-provoking questions about the role technology plays in society, how humans affect the world around us, and what it means to be alive.
