Andrea Anderson is an elementary school teacher in Toronto who has just been replaced by an android. While she scrambles to figure out how to live without employment, her husband also loses his job. He's a respected neurosurgeon but is nevertheless replaced by an automated surgical beast made by the RoboNomics Corporation.    

But just when Andrea's about to give up all hope of ever teaching again, she meets Chris O'Neill. Chris is the leader of a robotics protest group, and is willing to do anything to get his job back. But can Andrea sacrifice her principles to be a teacher again? Will she give up her reputation and everything she loves to get rid of the robots and get her life back to the way it was before they appeared? As the city and the world sink into deep financial crisis, she's going to have to make a choice: humans or robots.    

RoboNomics is a science fiction novel with a main character as interesting and complicated as Katniss from The Hunger Games, set in near-future Toronto. With the tension and chilling technological detail of Elysium and the same introspective, nuanced take on future events as P.D. James' Children of Men, RoboNomics is sure to chill you with its near-future vision and make you think twice about automation.  

This was originally a Nanowrimo project from 2011, although I've done tons of work on it since then! Enjoy!

I believe it's: "Would you mind meeting Principal Goodman and me in her office in a minute?"
