Transport yourself to Earth Year 2041 in Space Case by Stuart Gibbs. After months of living inside Moon Base Alpha, Earth’s first human colony on the moon, twelve-year-old Dash Gibson has some choice words to say about his experience: “Life in outer space sucks. Trust me, I know.” The furniture is inflatable and uncomfortable, the food is iffy, and the faraway toilets clog…A LOT. He’s resigned to the fact that he’s stuck there until his scientist parents have completed their assignments, so he deals with the monotony until a 2 a.m. bathroom run pulls him into a serious mystery involving the death of the base physician. He decides to investigate the death with the help of friends. What else will he do in this boring place? Crack open this quirky mystery and you too can travel to Moon Base Alpha.
