Praise

“The characters’ struggles are realistic, and the romantic chemistry is palpable, making this a joyful read.”—Publishers Weekly

“This novel is full of charm. . . . An ­engaging story, filled with lessons about believing in yourself when you never thought you could and believing others who might see the shine you never thought was ­possible.”—School Library Journal

“This lively teen romance, with alternating narration from Bel and Teo, is packed with humor as well as tender moments, while also reflecting common anxieties. . . .”—The Horn Book

“The message is clear: Women deserve to take up space in the STEM world too. A delightful teen romance about building robots—and new futures.”—Kirkus Reviews

My Mechanical Romance shines a light on the struggles bright young girls face in STEM fields, and combines it with an adorable romance that will leave you warm and smiling long after the last page. It’s romcom perfection.”—Adiba Jaigirdar, author of The Henna Wars, a TIME’s 100 Best YA Books of All Time
 
“Hilarious, heartfelt, and positively banterific, My Mechanical Romance is a can’t-miss debut. Bel and Teo are two brilliant teens whose snarky chemistry leaps off the page, even as they slowly reveal the layers of their hearts—Bel’s struggle to be taken seriously as a girl of color in STEM, and Teo’s fear that he’ll never live up to everyone’s sky-high expectations. Bel and Teo don’t just build kick-ass robots; they create a beautiful organic love story that helps them both discover all the best versions of themselves. I swooned, I cheered, and I will definitely read everything else Alexene Farol Follmuth writes!” —Monica Gomez-Hira, author of Once Upon a Quinceañera
