Space Case

Space CaseBy Stuart Gibbs

Dashiell Gibson is only 12 years old, but he has the privilege of being one of the first people to live on the moon.  Although that sounds exciting, life on the moon can be pretty boring.  Seeing the same people and doing the same things every day can get tedious.  And going outside is completely forbidden, especially for kids.

Life gets a bit more interesting when one of the moon base’s scientists dies under mysterious circumstances.  NASA and most other adults believe this scientist was simply careless and caused his own death. Dashiell, however, has reason to believe that he was killed. But who would believe a 12-year-old?

When Kira and her father move to the base, Kira becomes Dashiell’s friend and partner.  She is eager to solve this mystery too.  Can they do it without getting themselves in big trouble?

A funny, page-turning mystery, Space Case is a great read!  Ages 8-12.
