So far we have a little mechanical boy named Arkie. Jerome, a fifth grade boy, helped him find a new nose. From what I have read, I am guessing that someone wants to buy the junk yard, where I suspect that Arkie lives, from a man referred to as Wild Willy Videlbeck. There are couple of other things coming to light like I think Jerome's mother and sister are dead and he has yet to come to terms with it.
I like this story a lot. It has really grabbed my attention. Like I wrote a copy of days ago, I have had amazing luck with the middle grade novels I have gotten from NetGalley lately.
