New to town, Bea is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. You know the type: very cheery, very friendly, very average. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet observer who hasn't made a new friend since third grade. He's not a big fan of people in general... but he's willing to make an exception for her. Maybe.

Bea and Jonah are not going to have a friendship like other people have a friendship, where it's all based on gossip and parties and what everybody else thinks. Instead, their friendship comes from truth-bound conversations, shared secrets, daring stunts, and late-night calls to the same old-timer radio show. They help each other and hurt each other, push away and hold close. It's not romance, exactly - but it's definitely love. And it means more to them than either one can ever really know....

For anyone who's ever entered the wonderful, treacherous, consuming, meaningful world of a true friendship, How to Say Goodbye in Robot will strike a deep and lasting chord.

    " why, why, why with the strong language? hard to recommend strongly in my town for middle school students with the language of this one. Other than that, I thought the storyline quite interesting. Hated the cover. "

    " The only thing I want to say goodbye to is this garbage book! "

    " I picked up this book entirely because I loved the cover (and the title) and, despite popular wisdom, it turns out that sometimes that is the way to go. The characters felt very real to me and the storytelling was powerful without being overwrought. I'll look forward to reading more books by the author. "

    " There is so much sadness in this story. Yet, there is something refreshing about a story in which a girl and boy are friends without it being romantic. The story of Bea and Jonah's senior year will continue to haunt you long after you finish reading. "
