Amazon described this book as “The Breakfast Club” meets “Guardians of the Galaxy”. I was hooked!
Nax has dreamed of attending Ellis Station Academy, getting his pilot’s license and living on one of the colonies his ENTIRE life. He’s finally made it… and got kicked out in the first 24 hours. Now he and fellow rejects Zee, Case and Rion are headed for transport back to Earth. Suddenly, disaster strikes, the station is attacked and it’s all they can do to get an escape pod off. Some one has attacked the station and is getting ready to vent atmosphere effectively killing everyone still there. Under attack from who knows who, they jump to hyperspace and crash on a colony planet. Looking for help, they head for town and find a very helpful young man… who is leading them straight to police headquarters. Enter Asra. She derails their path, takes them into hiding and shows them their “wanted” posts. Yup, I said “wanted” posts. They are being blamed for the catastrophy at Ellis Academy and Tiger Squadron is hunting them on every colony in universe. Now what? Working together they must find out who is really behind the massacre on the moon, what do they want and how to stop them all while dodging capture at every turn. Good luck guys!
I would recommend this book to tweens, teens and adult lovers of YA literature who enjoy intergalactic adventure and loved Han Solo’s cocky insecurity. Happy reading!
Beginning, Monday, July 20 – Thor’s Side Gig
It is said that Thor can hear someone crying on the other side of the world. This week, you get to become a Foley artist – the sound effects guy for movies – and create some sounds for Thor to identify from Asgard. (Or maybe just test your friends here on Aquidneck Island.)
Grab and go instructions and supply bags available at the youth services desk in front of the check out desk beginning July 20 while supplies last.
