Suzanne van Rooyen’s I Heart Robot is officially here!
In a world on the brink of war between humans and robots, Quinn and Tyri are drawn together by their mutual love of music. But she doesn’t know he’s an android.
Sixteen-year-old Tyri wants to be a musician and wants to be with someone who gets her musical aspirations.
Q-I-99, aka ‘Quinn,’ lives in a scrap metal sanctuary with other rogue droids. While some use violence to make their voices heard, demanding equal rights for AI-enhanced robots, Quinn just wants a moment on stage with his violin to show the humans that androids like him have more to offer than their processing power.
Tyri and Quinn’s worlds collide when they’re accepted by the Baldur Junior Philharmonic Orchestra. As the rift between robots and humans deepens, Tyri and Quinn’s love of music draws them closer together, forcing Tyri to question where her loyalties lie and Quinn to question his place in the world. With the city on the brink of civil war, will Tyri’s and Quinn’s passion for music be enough to hold them together while everything else crumbles down around them, or will the truth of who they are tear them apart?
