Description

"This provocative jaunt...dissects society, technology, othering, and what makes humanity human." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"An unpredictable, gross, and prescient rumination on modernity, media consumption, and machine-aided communication." --Booklist (starred review) Told with Andrew Smith's signature dark humor, Rabbit & Robot tells the story of Cager Messer, a boy who's stranded on the Tennessee--his father's lunar-cruise utopia--with insane robots. To help him shake his Woz addiction, Billy and Rowan transport Cager Messer up to the Tennessee, a giant lunar-cruise ship orbiting the moon. Meanwhile, Earth, in the midst of thirty simultaneous wars, burns to ash beneath them. And as the robots on board become increasingly insane and cannibalistic, and the Earth becomes a toxic wasteland, the boys have to wonder if they'll be stranded alone in space forever. In Rabbit & Robot, Andrew Smith, Printz Honor author of Grasshopper Jungle, makes you laugh, cry, and consider what it really means to be human.

Review quote

Smith's ambitious world-building, which features extended metaphorical riffs on consumerism, class, social media outrage, sexual harassment, and violence, is wildly creative.--Horn Book Magazine
