May’s Moon by S.Y. Palmer is a Middle Grade story of kids preparing to be one of the few, first child astronauts!
“Michael May is wearing a space suit, standing on the edge of the world’s largest pool, about to find out what it’s like to be weightless. Beating thousands of others, the geeky boy they call ‘Micky Moon’ at home, is one of ten children from around the world accepted onto the ‘Children’s Moon Program’ in Florida. If he can survive the g-force of a space shuttle launch, overcome his secret fear of water and pass the other battery of tests, he could win a place on the next mission to the moon!”
This was a cute space story!
If you love Middle Grade stories AND love space, you should check this book out. But it’s not necessarily the space story you may have read before.
This takes place BEFORE the actual space launch. We follow a set of characters who are training to become the first kids sent into space.
They are placed through multiple trials to show their worth, and within it all, something sketchy happens. But don’t get too comfortable cause the plot twist will take you out of this world!
I gave this one 3 out of 5 stars. The writing is definitely tailored to younger audiences. There are also a lot of definitions when it comes to the dialogue which felt a little overdone for older audiences, but I think it’s perfect for the target readers.
