And the MG@Heart Book Club’s October pick is…
PSS 118 is just your typical school―except that it’s a rickety old spaceship orbiting Jupiter. When the school is mysteriously attacked, thirteen-year-old Jack receives a cryptic message from his father (the school’s recently-fired-for-tinkering-with-the-ship science teacher). Amidst the chaos, Jack discovers that his dad has built humanity’s first light-speed engine―and given Jack control of it. To save the ship, Jack catapults it hundreds of light-years away and right into the clutches of the first aliens humans have ever seen. School hasn’t just gotten out: it’s gone clear across the galaxy. And now it’s up to Jack and his friends to get everyone home.
This month, we are trying something a little different. Instead of a Twitter chat at the end of the month, we’re going to be doing a couple chat questions every week centered the book and our monthly theme which for this month is: THE FUTURE IS NOW!
We can’t wait to discuss all things sci fi and futuristic with you. So be sure to follow us on Twitter @mgatheart! The newsletter goes out 10/25!
