Read full description of the books The Computer Nut:This is one of the most sweetly and uniquely endearing books that I have read in quite some time.
I don't know how Betsy Byars conjured this wonderfully imaginative story into existence, but I am so very glad that she did, as I enjoyed it very much all the way through. Surprisingly humorous and also surprisingly touching, I feel that The Computer Nut succeeds in exceptional measure, adding a charming dimension to the list of books that have been authored by the one and only Betsy Byars.
The Computer Nut isn't one of Betsy Byars' most well known novels, but it shines with a light that is rare in the world of kid lit. I loved BB-9 and Willie and Kate (but especially BB-9), and to me this book will always be something very special.
