Spotlight: Moon High


Andrew Alden is one of only fifty students worldwide chosen to study at Moon High, the prestigious, moon-based Spac
e Travel Academy. All that stands between him and making history is doubt he can live up to his famous Grandfather's legacy, and fear he may not want to go through with it after all. As he awaits lift off, Andrew finds his long-time rival, Corbyn, also managed to get a seat on the hover shuttle. A fearless, fiery Irish boy named Liam distracts Andrew from his worries with comical antics. They bond quickly, arriving at Moon High for an extraordinary first year of holopod adventures, entity trapping experiments, shifting alliances, and astro tag rivalries. 

Andrew’s efforts to conform are quickly overshadowed by discovery of an alien species and a high-ranking deception that threatens to destroy the school his Grandfather founded. Andrew, Liam, and their deductive-minded friend Emma, race to uncover the truth behind the mortal threat, before they are caught by the Director they believe caused the crisis. 

This award-winning, young adult, science fiction novel is quick-paced and suspenseful with humorous and endearing moments. There are also touches of perseverance, hope, philosophy, and bonds of friendship.
