review The Obsoletes Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB Fraternal twin brothers Darryl and Kanga are just like any other teenagers trying to make it through high school They have to deal with peer pressure awkwardness and family drama But there’s one closely guarded secret that sets them apart they are robots So long as they keep t I received this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you for the opportunity to go out of my comfort zone and into a world of robots living silently among humans This book takes place in 1980s and 90s America specifically Michigan where twin brothers Kanga and Darryl are living as adolescents Their parents become obsolete and they are on their own Kanga becomes the parent and takes a mission to care for his brother This is pretty much the entire story mixed with a LOT of basketball I felt it had a lot of metaphors and hidden meanings and really appreciated the book for that I gave the book 3 stars because it interested me and is not typically a book I would like The story will stay with me although I did find it a little boring Robots and basketball just aren t my thing I feel like this would be great for a high school class read or a student to do a project on as well as an entertaining read for a science fiction lover
