Dashiell Gibson is a twelve-year old who lives on the moon. Famously, he is one of the first inhabitants to have this privilege. But as he states in the first chapter, life is pretty boring being stuck at Moon Base Alpha. There's just not much to do since he is trapped inside. His parents are both scientists who elected to come to the moon for research and Dashiell expected adventure, excitement, and danger. Unfortunately, he got none of those... until now.
There's been a murder aboard Moon Base Alpha and Dashiell is determined to figure who the culprit is, even if his parents, his teachers, and his superiors are telling him to stay out of the way. Dashiell knows there's something else going on.
Overall, this was a fun, quick read. I like sci-fi and I like YA, so this was right up my alley. Don't expect much and you'll enjoy this book. The whodunit was a refreshing change of pace for a sci-fi/YA and this book was definitely engaging. Not the greatest thing you'll read this summer but still worth picking up.
I love to read and to discuss books. My preferred genre is sci-fi but I like to read mostly anything.
