The Homework Machine Summary

Soon the four seatmates are spending every afternoon in Brenton’s bedroom, printing out their daily assignments on the computer they nickname Belch. The chronology and confession of their ill-fated escapade is related entirely through a series of transcripts, narrated by the four contrite kids, their parents, classmates, and Miss Rasmussen.

Sam is skeptical when Brenton claims he has programmed his computer to search the web and do all his homework each day, but it’s true.

Before long, things start to get out of control, and Belch becomes much more powerful than they ever imagined. Now he writes cool books like The Kid Who Ran for President; Honus & Me; The Million Dollar Shot; Race for the Sky; and The Edison Mystery: Qwerty Stevens, Back in Time.

Now the kids are in a race against their own creation, and the loser could end up in jail..worse! If you want to learn more about Dan or his books, stop by his website at Dan
