Space Case
Space Case | Stuart Gibbs
Its a murder mystery on the moon in this humorous and suspenseful space adventure from the author of Belly Up and Spy School that The New York Times Book Review called a delightful and brilliantly constructed middle grade thriller.Like his fellow lunarnautsotherwise known as Mooniesliving on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon. And hes bored out of his mind. Kids arent allowed on the lunar surface, meaning theyre trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their timeand the only other kid Dashs age spends all his time hooked into virtual reality games. Then Moon Base Alphas top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses theres 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 Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, Dash finds out, and its a secret that could change everything for the Mooniesa secret someone just might kill to keep...

I‘m happy to say 8 met all but my biking 2xs a week. I stayed within my limits on fast food and I‘ll be upping my book goal to 10 now. I didn‘t get to participate much in the walk-a-this today since we had my granddaughter‘s first bday party but I hope to make up some of that tomorrow.

I finished this book, recommended by my sixth grade son, a couple days ago and it's a thumbs up. It was slow until about 2/3 in and then it picked up the pace and ended with satisfaction and a twist that makes me want to read book 2. A solid 🌟🌟🌟.

My 9 year old daughter's current favorite author is Stuart Gibbs. She finished his whole "Spy School" series and loved them! Now she's on to his "Moon Base Alpha" series. I haven't read them yet so I can't say how good they are, but I do love the graphic design on all his covers.

Many of you may be aware of how my 11-year old son piled the Unwanted series of books by my bedside and told me I had to read them. And I ❤️ them. After a brilliant conversation on the way to school today about book 6, this is what he carried to the floor by my bedside tonight. He told me about each one, & which ones are the best (they all are). I love my kids. They are the biggest readers ever (next to me at that age of course). 🎊🎉

Bookzombie I love this! So sweet! 2y
Daisey Fantastic! 2y
BooksMcD Fablehaven is amazing and completely underrated! I always recommend it 😊 2y

I LOVED this book! It was smart, it was funny, and I seriously did not see the ending coming. Until now, Stuart Gibbs was a literary blind spot for me, but kids kept coming into the shop and raving about him. Now I know why. I don't care how old you are, read this book!

Diving into this for the children's book club that I run at work, aka The Not-So-Secret Reading Society! It'll be a nice change from the sad a dreary grown up books I've been dealt lately!
