The first in a series of four novellas, this book is a delight, following the most relatable AI robot you will ever meet. All that the self-named Murderbot wants to do is escape from its "employment" and catch up on terrible soap operas, and instead it gets dragged into protecting a group of humans as they discover some deep secrets about the large corporations that control the system. Fast paced, fun, and with a novel on the way (May 5th), these four novellas will make you laugh-out-loud.

Surprise! Jason's cat has the ability to time-travel, and he's going to drag Jason along for the ride. In the wink of an eye, they can travel from Ancient Egypt to Japan to the time of a young Leonardo DaVinci, and take the reader with them. This book was always an escape for me when I was a young child, and would be perfect for a child today looking to explore the world and its history.
