Making the Grade / Space Case


Making the GradeWhen it came time to draft up my fall to be read list, Space Case was one of the first novels on my list. I was super-duper excited to read it; after I fell in love with Spy School, I’ve learned that you can rarely go wrong with one of Stuart Gibbs’ books! Thankfully, I wasn’t disappointed. Written in Gibbs’ signature humorous style, Space Case is a fast and entertaining read {with an amazing cover too!}.

Summary: Like his fellow lunarnauts – otherwise known as Moonies – living on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous around the world for being one of the first humans to live on the moon. And he’s bored out of his mind. Kids aren’t allowed on the lunar surface, meaning they’re trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their time; and the only other kid Dash’s age spends all his time hooked into virtual reality games.

Then Moon Base Alpha’s top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses there’s foul play afoot, but no one believes him. Everyone agrees Dr. Holtz went onto the lunar surface without his helmet properly affixed, simple as that. But then Dash learns Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, and it’s a secret that could change everything for the Moonies; a secret someone just might kill to keep… {Goodreads}

Making the Grade Space CaseLet’s discuss! Space Case is the first book in the Moon Base Alpha series, and I can’t wait to see how the story goes in Book Two. It doesn’t come out until the spring of 2016, however, so in the meantime, I’ll be anticipating the third Spy School novel: Evil Spy School. Do you’ll think you will check this one out?

Have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. […] Finally, the other middle grade author that made my list is Stuart Gibbs, who wrote Spy School and Spy Camp, among many others. It’s such a shame that I rarely hear about his books, because I can’t think of better novels to pass on to any reader in the MG age group. I have no doubt that his next release, Evil Spy School, will be just as great as its predecessors! {reviews: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5} […]
