Overview

Mickey Price: Journey to Oblivion by John P. Stanley

It’s 1977, three years past the last Apollo mission to the moon, or so the public has been told. Mickey Price is a kid growing up in an orphanage in Orlando; Trace Daniels just won her first go-kart championship in Nevada; Jonah Trotsky is a budding scientist In Illinois. They don’t know each other yet, but they are all being visited by men in short-sleeved white shirts, thin black ties, and distinctive gold-colored glasses — men who have been watching and studying them. They are invited to a NASA camp, but this camp isn’t for summer fun. It’s a training camp for a mission unlike anything they ever dreamed of, an adventure full of danger, thrills, fun, and an interesting cast of characters, not all of which are human.

This adventure tale is told with lots of kid-friendly humor and edge-of-your seat excitement, giving it wide appeal across gender and genre.

My 12 year-old son and 10 year-old daughter just loved this book.  Funny dialogue, fast-paced adventure, great characters. We are hoping for a sequel!

If your kids love Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, they will love this book. My sons could not put it down. We've given it to friends, both boys and girts, who all report that they love it to. A great book for avid and reluctant readers alike.
