My 12 year old daughter read this book and loved it. Here's what she had to say:
"I just finished STAR CHALLENGERS MOONBASE CRISIS this morning and was glued to it until I did. I am giving this book 10 stars! Does the author have any plans for making a sequel? If so, I am really exited. I am going to try and learn about three things this month: electricity, the human body and motors and engines. Kind of what the book said to do, only I am doing this for my learning benefit. The book is a great motivator. I think it would be cool to learn a little about three things every month, and expand my horizon."

Format: Hardcover
The book is a simply an advertisement for the Challenger Center for Space Science Exploration's "Challenger Learning Center (CLC)" franchises. While the Challenger Learning Centers have a noble and admirable goal, the authors of this book subvert any kind of emphasis placed by the CLC programs on rational thinking or scientific reasoning - choosing to, instead, raise the ridiculous spectre of hostile aliens on Earth's moon.

As a science educator, I find this kind of chicanery disturbingly unethical. Students can be encouraged to explore science with ACTUAL SCIENCE, rather than the half baked pseudo-mystical shenanigans portrayed in this book.

In addition, the book is poorly written, even for a young-adult novel. Let's not pretend this is anything more than what it really is: a mediocre advertisement for a corporate "non-profit," tarted up to look like adventure fiction.

I'm a PhD physicist, a university professor, and a fighter pilot, not someone prone to gushing. However, I have to gush about this book. It was recommended to me by my wife, who is involved in the Challenger Center program. I couldn't put it down, finishing it in just a few hours, and was amazed at how, in my view, it accomplished exactly what it was trying to do--motivate kids to pursue careers in technical subjects. It blended accurate science, gripping action, and subtle gender and racial diversity into a great storyline that doesn't come across as preachy. As I was reading, I tried to put myself into the role of a teenager who had just come out of a Challenger Learning Center mission like tens of thousands of kids do each year. The continuation of the Challenger mission into a real-life adventure was compelling and thrilling. I really wanted to be there myself with the kids in the story! I can't wait for the next two books in the series. Congratulations June Scobee Rogers, Kevin Anderson, and Rebecca Moesta--you've created a kids classic! It takes up right where the truly outstanding Challenger Centers leave off!
