The story is about a scientist who wants to win a contest. He is building a robot. He has to try to make it be a super smart robot but when he put the robot on the roof to get struck by lightning for a super charge, it struck but it didn't work. The lights turned off and they were the only ones in the block with a power outage. I like the book so far because i like robots and it would be cool to hear about one. so far my favorite character is the scientist because he is funny when he does his evil laugh.
