Description

Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson, authors of the beloved Familiars series, ramp up the action in this space-age adventure that School Library Journal calls "a satisfying choice," perfect for fans of Star Wars and Percy Jackson.

Zachary Night has been waiting his whole life for this moment. Like his family before him, he's finally headed to Indigo 8, a top secret training center where future Starbounders learn the skills to protect the galaxy. But being a Starbounder is no walk on the moon. No sooner has Zachary mastered the warp glove basics than a mission into space goes wrong and puts him and his new friends right in the line of fire. And when a plot to destroy Indigo 8 comes to light, Zachary will have to get back to Earth on his own and fast--before there's no Earth left to go back to.

With the "winning combination of action and humor" (SLJ, starred review) that earned The Familiars an Indie Next List Pick and eight state award nominations, Starbounders is an out-of-this-world adventure that has surefire kid appeal.

Back cover copy

Zachary Night feels ready. Like his family before him, he's finally proving himself at Indigo 8, a top secret training center where future Starbounders learn the skills they need to protect the galaxy. He's already met a friendly off-planet exchange student and a girl with guts to spare, and he is gearing up for his long-awaited first trip into space.

But being a Starbounder is no walk on the moon.

No sooner has Zachary mastered the warp glove basics than a mission-gone-wrong puts him and his new friends right in the line of fire. Stranded on a distant planet with a host of alien fugitives, Zachary realizes that space is much more dangerous than he ever imagined. And when a plot to destroy Indigo 8 comes to light, Zachary knows he'll have to get back to Earth on his own and fast--before there's no Earth left to go back to.
