At Vanguard One Middle School (aka Vainglorious), the halls are crawling with robots, but Fuzzy isn’t your run-of-the-mill android. When Fuzzy enrolls at Vainglorious as part of the Robot Integration Program, he is quickly befriended by Max, who is determined to help him learn everything he needs to know. The middle school of the future is just as fraught with crazy kids, tricky teachers, and bad smells as the middle school of today. Add in some evil schemers, and you have real trouble. Together, Max and Fuzzy reveal the super-secret, nefarious purpose behind the Robot Integration Program. They must fight to save the school before it’s too late.

Fuzzy is one girl’s quest to befriend a robot, survive middle school, and save the world.

Praise

**STARRED REVIEW**
“Origami Yoda creator Angleberger teams up with science-fiction writer Dellinger for this funny, thrilling, and thought-provoking page-turner…the duo have crafted a day-after-tomorrow cautionary tale of friendship with a fuzzy, robotic heart…a winner.”
Kirkus
"An absorbing, fast-paced read and an excellent choice for middle schoolers."
School Library Journal
"A tech-infused wild ride, with some suspenseful moments and brilliant twists—an ideal book for reluctant readers, young science fans and really anyone who wishes their best friend were a robot."
Bookpage
"Coauthors Tom Angleberger and Paul Dellinger weave computer concepts into the action, using snippets of programming code to show Fuzzy's perspective. ...The use of code as a storytelling device is funny, and cleverly illustrates the way a young mind processes the overwhelming input of a typical day in middle school."
Shelf Awareness
"Angleberger and Dellinger hit the perfect mix of funny and contemplative, speculative and realistic."
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
