Description: A group of orphans on the run search for a new home among the stars.

When a group of orphans discover they have a common connection, plucky heroine Phoebe leads them in a daring escape from their orphanage to an uninhabited moon. But their idyllic paradise is shattered when the powerful corporate boss who caused the deaths of their parents sends a relentless henchman to track them down. Now, with nowhere left to turn and tired of being on the run, these resourceful kids decide there's only one thing left to do: Fight back!

Jake's Review: First of all I would recommend this book for boys 8-11 yr old because I think older kids like me might be too mature for the book.  I think it would be better suited for boys but some non girly girls would enjoy it too. It's really funny and it made me laugh a lot. I liked the fact that there were scientific experiments in it and really cool machines.  Kids who dig science will really enjoy this too.  It was kinda sad at times which I didn't like.  I also thought some of the illustrations could have been done better.  The kids are like real kids as they are often scared but still do things that are brave. If you like adventure stories you are going to want to read this book.

3.5/5 Dewey's
