Spaced out is another awesome book by Stuart Gibbs and is the first book from the Moon Base Alpha series.
Dashiell Gibbson (also known as Dash) is seemingly a normal, average kid…except for one thing. He lives on the moon. People on Earth think life on the moon is awesome; but the truth is, the moon really stinks. Dash is always bored and there is only one kid around his age whose name is Roddy. But, Roddy isn’t very fun to be around because he obsessively spends all his time on virtual reality video games.
Dash’s days were boring, that is, until Moon Base Alpha’s top scientist, Dr. Holtz, gets murdered. Dash has a feeling the murder was done on purpose, but nobody believes him.
Everyone thinks that Dr. Holtz just went out on to the lunar surface without his suit properly fixed. But Dr. Holtz was on the edge of releasing a new discovery. Dash soon finds out Dr. Holtz’s secret…and it’s a secret that could change everything for the moonies (people who live on the moon). The secret is so deep, so critical, so intense that it could justify a murder. Read Spaced Out to find out what happens!
