Can Dotty outwit everyone at the Brussels Academy?

If android Dotty can spend an entire year masquerading as a twelve-year-old schoolgirl she could win a multi-million pound prize for her creators. Being human is a piece of cake, but can she navigate through the trials and tribulations of year 7?

Fabulously funny and thought-provoking book which could lead to some great philosophical debates.

This is a great book with many twists to the story. It also has a great sense of humor and can be comical at times.

This book was extremely enjoyable and fun, it one of those books that actually make you giggle. The characters are very lovable and relatable, and the curiosity of Dotty (the ‘undercover robot’) is always keeping you second guessing about what is going to happen next. It has many plot twists and a great storyline. Definitely recommended! One of the questions I have for the authors is: what type of things might Dotty get up to if there were to be a sequel? Thanks.

This book combines humour with big questions about what it means to be human and what your identity is. The great plot also made me not want to stop reading and needless to say despite being a bit short the ending was great. Maybe the authors should consider a sequel?

I would recommend this book because it is a comical and hilarious book yet it still just lures you in. The only fault with this book is that there is no sequel to continue on Dotty’s story.

This book is most suitable for children aged 8-13 years old.
