Shea worries when her brother Odin goes missing because she knows that his social skills are severely lacking. She decides to head to L.A. to find him, and when she does, she is dragged into quite the adventure. Odin has broken into an research lab that experiments on animals, and while escaping, manages to acquire a bionic dog. Shea ends up getting some help from a fellow named Twist, and together they go up against the ruthless Singular Corp. Fast paced and entertaining. Will be enjoyed by reluctant older readers, especially boys. Rated mature due to violence and language.
