This particular book is about a very wicked plan which takes 50 young space cadets away from home by luring them on a spaceship. Representing their own home areas, they make awesome presentations from a podium before going to a cosmic amusement park. However, it is a trap and could have turned out very badly if not for Caramel's dream walking and other abilities as well as clever last minute thinking.
At the outset, Caramel and fifty of the most talented youth from all over the universe are waiting to board the newest passenger space vessel and battleship, Caramel Cardamon Crystal Spaceship. This group of talented youth known as The Intergalactic Youth Council are about to embark on its maiden voyage to Amzalu and then a hyperbaric space jump. Each will have the opportunity to present their award winning contributions. They will then be rewarded with a day at the amusement center at Amzalu.
Each participant wears a blue translator bracelet which gives them access to non-restricted areas of the ship. Caramel immediately suspects something is awry. Though she is warned not to use her mind-reading powers, she is forced to do so in order to calm her fears. Caramel speaks the words, “salted caramel cupcakes” whenever she wants to communicate with her Elvin friends. Readers will love the catchy dialogue phrases like “totally elvo,” and “Well, Miss Smartie Elf Pants.” The author does not fail to disappoint with scenes that involve technology such as Energy Matter Transport Tubes that move the characters from place to place, a swimming pool that allows the water to evaporate from the skin like a gel, robot waiters that present hologram menus containing anything you want to eat, and instant hairdo stylers.
Caramel and her friends are torn between the wonderful adventure on board and a underlying tension that things are not right with the Chairman and space ship crew. Together they will pool their abilities when they discover an old enemy has a very different fate in store for all of them. Once the plot is uncovered, the race is on to undo the nefarious deed.
Recommended for readers ten and up. Readers will find the action adventure hard to put down. At just over one hundred pages, the book has broad appeal to reluctant readers as well.
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Caramel and her friends explore the ship and can't help but go into the restricted areas--which is completely against the rules! Caramel starts to suspect something strange going on and tries to convince her friends to listen to her. She needs to succeed before they run out of time.
This book was fun to read! Most of the characters are familiar but there are a couple of new ones. There was a lot of action and I enjoyed the pacing. Caramel needs to stay on her toes as she faces someone with an evil plan. She tries to relax and enjoy herself when they are given time to socialize but has a hard time because all she can focus on is figuring out what's really going on. She cares deeply for her friends and will do whatever she needs to in order to protect them.
It helps to have read the first two books in the series but this can be enjoyed on its own as well. This is a fun series for a middle grader who enjoys Sci-Fi, fantasy, space and/or technology. It's also a good book for a reluctant reader since it moves quickly. I know this says it's the final book but I thought the door was left open at the end for there to be more...
I received a copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.
