Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bursts with wonder and love." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Leo has lived his entire life on Moon 2. Born on the space station along with a set of twins, he is anxious to finally visit Earth so he can meet his beloved grandfather in person and see the ranch where Grandpa lives. Leo is a bit of a space prodigy—his mom is a renowned astronaut and scientist, and Grandpa was among the elite crew that last visited the Moon. Leo, excited to bond with his mother, is disappointed with her calculated and distant professionalism. When Leo finally makes it to the ranch, Grandpa is everything the teen had hoped. Leo has a new dog waiting for him and his grandfather is eager for him to learn ranching skills. Meanwhile, the protagonist is frustrated that he can't contact the twins and then finds a flyer indicating that outsiders are willing to help "space boy." Leo isn't sure what help he might need, but after an accident, the doctor notices his bone density is surprisingly low. When Grandpa discharges him from the hospital prematurely, the boy wonders what is really going on, and hints of conspiracy start to unfold. This novel begins slowly and is overly technical, but it adequately creates suspense and will evoke emotions regarding Earth's best experiences. The writing style is difficult, relying on under-capitalized text-speak throughout. VERDICT A decent addition to sci-fi collections that combines elements of Andy Weir's The Martian with hints of Margaret Peterson Haddix's Turnabout.—Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
