Rida Riaz releases When Robots Take Over

An Abbotsford teen has written and released a children’s book called When Robots Take Over.

The book by Rida Riaz, 13, was published earlier this summer.

It is about a 10-year-old girl, named Mindy, who enjoys school over playing and television.

“But when she is asked by her teacher to enter a creative writing contest, Mindy is definitely in it to win it,” states the back cover of the book.

“As she inspires us all with her hard work and creative writing talents, she learns a wonderful lesson along the way.”

Rida says she has always loved writing and telling stories. She is now working on a novel.

When Robots Take Over is available on
