Amy Peterson is a von Neumann machine, a self-replicating humanoid robot. For the past five years, she has been grown slowly as part of a mixed organic/synthetic family. She knows very little about her android mother's past, so when her grandmother arrives and attacks her mother, little Amy wastes no time: she eats her alive. Now she carries her malfunctioning granny as a partition on her memory drive, and she's learning impossible things about her clade's history - like the fact that the failsafe that stops all robots from harming humans has failed Which means that everyone wants a piece of her, some to use her as a weapon, others to destroy her.

I've got the sniffles so I'm nesting on the couch, and I was able to finish this. It's fun, pretty fast-paced, and brings up some fascinating concepts. It's a quick read, but the epilogue could've been shorter and less explain-y imo. Also, there was some stereotypical characterization of some of the characters of color that made me uncomfortable. Though I enjoyed this overall, I won't be continuing with the series.

Slump officially busted!

Robot girl eats her killer robot grandma then goes on the run with a new robot friend and his robot newborn. Heck yes I liked it. Looking forward to the sequel.
