"Strap on your spacesuits and prepare for narrative G-force! "

This science-fiction novel for 9- to 12-year-olds has a thrilling plot, catapulting the reader through a cosmic adventure that owes as much to Lord of the Flies as to Lost in Space. It’s impossible not to get caught up in the quest for survival of this group of young trainee space commanders who are thrust into leadership prematurely when a space “jump” goes wrong and the adult crew of the transport ship Orion are temporarily suspended in sleep, four months after they left Earth.
