Summary
The evil Dr. Micron is in jail, but the scandal at TinkerTech has caused a lot of anti-robot feeling in Terabyte Heights, making life difficult for the ten-year-old robotics genius George Gearing and his robot buddy, Jackbot--especially since Micron is the only person who can help George restore his parents, and his price is a jail-break

Review
  • Grades 4-7 Difficult situations always seem to find George Gearing. In this third book, an antirobot sentiment pervades Terabyte Heights after the MOD rollout debacle, and discarded robots have taken refuge at Uncle Otto’s junkyard. TinkerTech is shut down, and evil Dr. Micron is in jail. George focuses his energies on trying to reboot Project Mercury with the intent of getting his parents back from a digitized state, but he can’t quite get it to work. When he receives an offer of help from an unlikely source, George accepts without a thought about the consequences. Continued laughs and high-tech high jinks. -- Fredriksen, Jeanne (Reviewed 01-01-2016) (Booklist, vol 112, number 9)
  • Since George Gearing uncovered Dr. Micron's sinister plan to turn robots into killers and control the minds of the unsuspecting citizens of Terabyte Heights (Lots of Bots, 2015), an "anti-robot movement" has taken over the town. While personal bots are being abandoned by the hundreds at Uncle Otto's junkyard, George remains holed up in the Secret Mercury Lab, working furiously to bring his trapped parents back from the digital world. Unfortunately, George is stumped. When an irresistible offer for help comes from a criminal mastermind—the one man on Earth George knows can't be trusted—he finds himself caught up in another techno-battle that may very well cost him the one thing he wants most in the world. Fans of the Robots Rule series will enjoy their reunions with a familiar cast of characters, human and android alike. Jackbot, George's personal robot, and his lady love bot, Cookie, continue to provide comic relief. Early on in the novel, readers will empathize with an exhausted 11-year-old forgoing sleep and the company of his best friend in an effort to put his family back together. Unfortunately, the parents that George so desperately longs to rescue again remain disappointingly one-dimensional, and their plotline gets lost as the action shifts to Dr. Micron's latest quest for world domination. A reliable-enough helping for Robots Rule readers. (Science fiction. 8-11)(Kirkus Reviews, September 15, 2015)
