Blurb (Goodreads):
Twenty years ago, the robots designed to fight our wars abandoned the battlefields. Then they turned their weapons on us.

Only a few escaped the robot revolution of 2071. Kevin, Nick, and Cass are lucky —they live with their parents in a secret human community in the woods. Then their village is detected and wiped out. Hopeful that other survivors have been captured by bots, the teens risk everything to save the only people they have left in the world—by infiltrating a city controlled by their greatest enemies.

Revolution 19 is a cinematic thriller unlike anything else. With a dynamic cast of characters, this surefire blockbuster has everything teen readers want—action, drama, mystery, and romance. Written by debut novelist Gregg Rosenblum, this gripping story shouldn’t be missed.

My Thoughts:

What would you do if your world is ruled by robots? If you'd think about it, robots were made by humans like us, then they're ruling us? That's insane. Surely we would never let that happen. But just in case you're wondering how it will be, Revolution 19 is the book to be.

A world with bots as rulers is scary. But that doesn't stop the siblings Kevin, Nick and Cass from--literally--stepping into the city to find their missing parents. There, they meet Lexi and her friend Amanda who helped them hide, fit in and find their parents.

The next turn of events were a mixture of surprise and predictability, but the thing that kept me reading this book was the fun way it is written. Mysterious with little thrill and action and the love that the characters have not only to their parents, but also to their siblings and the people who helped them. This book will not only entertain you, but will also make you appreciate all the people around you, especially your family.

Revolution 19 is a fun and quick read, and I like it. I can imagine it being published as an animated movie. The story is about love for the family and standing up to those who do wrong and underestimates us and brave, courage and no age can limit the change that people can do. It is a futuristic novel that will surely capture the hearts of young readers.
