Spaced Out by Stuart Gibbs
I am Thijs. I enjoy reading (maybe a little too much) and being outdoors. I have a younger brother and my favorite dessert is root beer floats.
This moon based alpha novel is creative, eventful and full of mysteries. Spaced Out is a story not fully related to one of the author’s other books called Space Case. You will understand this book more if you read Space Case first. In the very end of Space Case, the main character Dash finds out Zan is an alien. This book is about when the baes commander, (Nina the Machina) goes missing dash the main character goes on an adventure to go find her.
When the story starts Dash is showing Zan the movie Star Wars. Dash is trying to explain what humans think aliens are like. Suddenly, the biggest jerks in the universe, the Sjoberg’s kids, (Lily and Patton), burst into Dash’s family’s room because they thought he was talking to Roddy. Dash confesses he is not talking to anybody, but Lily and Patton do not believe him. Dash quickly corrects himself and says he is not talking to anybody here, because that sort of is true. Zan is not really at the moon base. She is just projecting a mental image in Dash’s brain, which makes it seem as if she was actually there. Dash wonders why the Sjoberg kids are so upset at Roddy, but before he can figure that out Patton leaps at him. From here the story takes off with many adventures that are entertaining.
If you want to find out if Dash escapes the Sjoberg kids and learn more about Zan, check out this book at the library. You will not be disappointed by this engaging book. If you are a fan of science fiction this is a perfect book to read this summer. I am looking forward to reading some of the author’s other books, like Spy School.
