Rafa Was My Robot

Summary: Jacob and his robot Rafa do everything together, but one day, Rafa begins to slow down, becoming weaker with each day, and Jacob, unable to find a cure for his friend, must come to terms with possibly losing him.

Rating: 2 **

The story is about a robot who is dying and a boy who searches the world to try to save him by trying to replace its battery. The book lacked the depth or emotion needed for a book about death.
