This month we are reading COG by Greg Van Eekhout. Cog (short for Cognitive Development) looks like a normal kid but is actually a robot. When he gets damaged and is returned to the lab for repairs, he discovers his creator has disappeared. With the help of four robot friends, Cog sets out on a mission to find her. Genre: SCIENCE FICTION.

Chapters 12 - 22

2. Cog does not want to treat others the way uniMIND has treated him. What does Cog do differently when re-programing Car with the X-module?
3. Did you expect their brain-switching plan to work? 
4. Did you like how the book ended? How did you like the novel overall?
5. Who was your favorite robotic character?
