Leanna Smart would have loved a Hannah Montana of her own to hold the spotlight while she’s free to be a normal, non-famous teenager. Leanna and Pablo meet at 5:00 a.m. at the bodega in the dead of winter. It’s absurd to think they’d be A Thing: she’s one of the most famous people in the world and he’s a bodega clerk college dropout. But as they discover who they are, who they want to be, and how to defy the deafening expectations of everyone else, Lee and Pab turn to each other. Which, of course, is when things get properly complicated.

Rabbit & Robot tells the story of Cager Messer, a boy who’s stranded on the Tennessee—his father’s lunar-cruise utopia—with insane robots.
Cager has been transported to the Tennessee, a giant lunar-cruise ship orbiting the moon that his dad owns, by Billy and Rowan to help him shake his Woz addiction. Meanwhile, Earth, in the midst of thirty simultaneous wars, burns to ash beneath them. And as the robots on board become increasingly insane and cannibalistic, and the Earth becomes a toxic wasteland, the boys have to wonder if they’ll be stranded alone in space forever.
