The Star Agency (The Star Agency Chronicles) by R.E. Weber  Theopolis James Logan is trying to get over the death of his grandfather, who has been taking care of him. Now his Auntie is taking care of him, which is not working well with him. One day he gets a puzzling message on his computer and decides with his best friend to figure it out. Later he finds himself on another planet, the aliens want him as part of their Star Agency. A fun story, Theo is very likable. I liked the writing style, and the story line. I think this would be perfect for middle school readers (as well as young adult and adults too).

Do computer games use imagination? Theo certainly thinks they do, but his guardian’s not so sure, and his best friend thinks a trip to the bowling alley might help. So begins R.E. Weber’s Star Agency, a middle-grade novel that will take young Theo from his safe ordinary world into a place where computer games are but a pale reflection of his new reality. Alien creatures, strange weapons, curious landscapes and starfields abound, plus a fine collection of mysteries to be solved. Readers will follow along with this story, looking for answers even as the characters try to solve their problems. It’s a novel that certainly draws the reader in, with its bereaved thirteen-year-old protagonist, well-imagined worlds of galactic powers and intrigue, and neat mysteries. "Knowledge and facts are no substitute for... experience," in real life, as well as in this tale. And my only complaint is, it ends like a TV episode with the story half-begun – it's a good ploy to encourage young readers to pick up more books I suppose. Disclosure: I read about the book online and found a free ecopy.

Theopolis James Logan, a young boy who just lost his Grandfather, get's an unexpected message from a most unexpected source.  He leaves his family, friend and planet to pursue this strange invite. The book was fantastic! I did find that I had to look up a few  distinct British colloquialism, but it added to the story so it really wasn't an issue. Mr. Weber spins a terrific yarn. I'm looking forward to the next installment of this fine series. "Well done Mate!"
