Summary

The Golden Compass for the digital age! When a coding star enters an elite technology academy, she discovers a world of competition, intrigue, and family secrets - plus a robotic companion that isn't what it seems. 

Lacey Chu has always dreamed of working as an engineer for MONCHA, the biggest tech firm in the world and the company behind the "baku" - a customizable "pet" with all the capabilities of a smartphone. But when Lacey is rejected by the elite academy that promises that future, she's crushed. 

One night, Lacey comes across the broken form of a highly advanced baku. After she repairs it, the cat-shaped baku she calls Jinx opens its eyes and somehow gets her into her dream school. But Jinx is different than any other baku she's ever seen.... He seems real. 

As Lacey settles into life at school, competing with the best students in a battle of the bakus that tests her abilities, she learns that Jinx is part of a dangerous secret. Can Lacey hold on to Jinx and her dreams for the future?

Really good book

I love this book because it makes me kinda sad but it’s happy and I love the cliffhanger it ends on.

A fun little romp

This was a decent story. Certainly interesting. I would say it’s probably a medium type of story, fun, different... but unfortunately I didn’t find it particularly engaging. That could just be me, though. I found it hard to concentrate on the storyline and had a hard time connecting with Lacy’s character. In fact, on several occasions i found myself annoyed with her. I really enjoyed Jinx’s character though...

I can’t decide if I will want to check out the second book when it comes out or not.
