This was such a great book! Yes, there was romance as the title implies, but it was more about finding your passion, and not doing what (even you) expected to do.
Bel transfers to a new school when her parents separate and ends up on the Robotics team. Within this group she didn’t want to join, she finds friendship, love, and the knowledge that she can do things she didn’t think she could. Teo is the son of a tech mogul and takes the weight of his world on his shoulders. Through Bel, he learns to take time for himself, too.
This book also deals thoughtfully with how girls and women are treated in the math and science worlds. STEM is so important, but it's not as accepting as it seems on a surface. My Mechanical Romance emphasizes these complexities presenting the real story. The writer skillfully explores various issues the characters face throughout the novel.
It's a wonderful weekend read because readers will want to see how it all plays out!
