Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up–Dyson Wales is the newest member on the International Space Station, where eight scientists from around the world reside. His dream-come-true soon becomes a nightmare when it is evident that everything is not harmonious onboard. On a simple repair mission outside the station, cosmonaut Nicolay Morozov’s thrusters do not re-fire and he cannot maneuver back inside. He is floating away with less than eight hours to live. Was this an accident or was it sabotage? This space whodunit raises moral questions about who can save the health of the world and whose country has the right to get the credit. The majority of the characters are not developed because of the rapid pace and mayhem of the story. The ending is not a surprise yet the action will still entice teens because of the full-color imagery of Caravalho’s chaotic atmosphere inside the space station, which parallels the disturbingly calm pages of Nicolay floating further and further away. Dyson’s inquiries and discoveries solve the murder of Nicolay while the destruction of the space station that crumbles around him is never understood.–Nancy D. Tolson, Mitchell College, New London, CT
