Wow. That was the first thing I said after reading this book. Lacey Chu lives in a world where they use bakues instead of iphones. Many people become friends with their baku and the bakus assist their owner. Lacey really wants to get into Profectus- a special advanced school- and she thinks she will. After all, she's an amazing engineer and can fix almost everything. Plus, if she gets in Profectus she will have a guaranteed future at Moncha- her dream job. But when Lacey received a email saying she's not accepted into the school, she's devastated. But, she still needs a baku, so she and her friend go to get one. She gets a level 1 beetle, which is the lowest level. (The higher they are, the better!) To go to Profectus she needs at least a level 3 baku, but she's not going there so she doesn't care. Lacey and her friend, Zoya are walking, but Zoya's baku gets lost. Lacey goes to find it, but also finds a cat baku. It's all torn apart and beard up. But like mentioned earlier, Lacey is an excellent engineer. She fixes it up and then receives a surprising letter from her dream school. This time she's been accepted! And they confirm that she has a level 3 baku, Jinx? Jinx is the cat she rescued and apparently her baku. Now at Profectus, Lacey makes new friends, learns about baku battles, and tries to solve the mystery that Jinx isn't like any baku ever made. And if people find out that Jinx isn't a normal baku-Jinx is in great danger. Filled with mystery, a bit of romance, and heartbreaking news, this book has it all. I was so shocked at the end, and loved this book. I highly recommend! Happy reading!
