2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Juanita Stewart on April 23, 2012
Format: Paperback
YA readers can find the same excitement, adventure, sense of discovery and fun with the computer savvy, "nanotechnology" available to the geeks of this lunar colony. The author demonstrated that it is not just magic,witchcraft, spells and wizardry that can capture the imagination of youth. This story is strikingly contrasted to Golding's, "Lord of the Flies," where individual differences nearly destroyed the group. Here those individual differences worked to advance the story. This story is forward to the future. The author takes the inquiring, exploratory, fearless nature of youth and merges it with technology to create a story that is engaging and rivets with suspense and tension. The author effectively uses three teens and a robot to provides a clinic on what it means to work cooperatively for their own survival. While at the same time, finding ways to deal with challenges and dangers that were totally foreign. Their lunar discoveries benefited the entire colony in two significant ways. I do not want to summarize the story as it was crisply told by the author but their startling discoveries were far reaching in terms of their colony. This is an imaginative and wonderfully engaging story. I suspect we will hear more from these "luna geeks".

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Valerie Frankel on April 12, 2012
Format: Paperback
Here is the story of three teens, two of whom detest each other. We have a brave Hawaiian boy, a spunky Japanese girl, and a pompous jerk. When an asteroid hits the moonbase where their parents work, all three must band together to cross into the mysterious dark side of the moon, seeking their only path to saving their loved ones. Their only help comes from the antique land rover abandoned on the moon by the first mission a century before, and a tiny party robot with a disco strobe light. This book is all action from beginning to end, and as such, a big draw for the Percy Jackson and Hunger Games crowd. The characters are fun, delightful, and more to the point, REAL. Though their mission is straightforward, their courage through trials and pitfalls makes this a real page turner. A light easy read like the Heinlein Juveniles. Enjoy!

I started to read this book as I often do before falling asleep and found that was a mistake! I couldn't put it down. Would make a great movie too!

This is an excellent adventure story for young adults, but also enjoyable for older adults too. I found it very entertaining!
