Take a look inside TrooFriend!

Next month we’re very excited to be publishing TrooFriend – a unique, gripping, and little bit sinister sci-fi story from Waterstones Children’s Book Prize nominee, Kirsty Applebaum. And today we’re sharing the opening chapters!

Imagine having the perfect friend, one who never steals, lies or bullies. Now you can, with the TrooFriend 560, the latest in artificial intelligence! What can go wrong with a robot buddy? Especially one that’s developing human characteristics and feelings, and who has just run away with her human?
