Kids will like it

by BrightReaders (WorldCat user published 2019-03-31) Very Good Permalink

Just finished reading Leo Gray and the Lunar Eclipse last night and can't imagine a kid who wouldn't like it. Leo's world is fun, innovative, and there's enough action and suspense to justify it's price of a theater ticket. Looking forward to see where this series will go.

I had this book recommended from a friend who is part of an early review program. My oldest daughter who's just finishing fifth grade this year really liked it. I was surprised when she requested her own "Quiet Time"...

Fun Scifi Mystery

by lemoncupcakes (WorldCat user published 2019-04-29) Very Good Permalink

This was a fast fun read! The author's writing style is really different. Instead of greeting us with a typical dystopian setting, we meet the main character in a present day setting within a futuristic setting, ex: Leo's family...

The young protagonist, Leo, is from a family whose parents resist technology and is somewhat of an outcast. When his mother and teacher arrange for him to enter a rocket-building contest, Leo ends up winning. First prize is a free ticket to a utopian community on the moon called Luna City. Once there, Leo uncovers a sinister plot to destroy the city. He and his friends know they have to find a way to foil the plans before the next lunar eclipse happens. Characters from multi-national backgrounds make this book especially appealing to a wide audience that will be comprised of middle-school aged to young adult-level readers."@en ;
