Description

What's going on? Mike is whisked away on a trip to Mars on only eight hours' notice, and while that sounds kind of cool. . . things aren't quite right. His parents might be involved in a sabotage plot; the know-it-all, talks-too-much girl in his class seems out of this world; and his sister back on Earth is missing. As if all that weren't enough, Mike's teacher seems to come from the Dark Ages of the twenty-first century, and his mom's assistant is a creepy goon.

What could be worse?

Oh, yeah! The food stinks!

Loaded with laughs and fast-paced action, K. A. Holt's first novel is set to give summer reading a cosmic blast of fun.
