Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to go to astronaut camp. Her homeschooled world has seemed increasingly claustrophobic lately, and she’s wanted to be an astronaut ever since her dad put velcro on her clothes when she was small. She didn’t think she would win the sweepstakes, but she had to try. And despite having to leave her parents and her best friend behind, camp is the most fun she’s ever had.
But now a lot of things are happening that Maisie didn’t expect. She didn’t expect Jonathan Ingalls Wilder to be interested in her. She didn’t expect to get a ride on the space elevator. She didn’t expect to visit Midway Station. She didn’t expect to be shown strange alien artifacts. And she definitely didn’t expect to have to save the world.
Shannon Hale brings her knack for relatable characters and unique storylines to the world of science fiction. Dangerous will appeal to anyone who’s ever secretly wished for a radioactive spider bite or a batmobile. Comic book fans, science fiction fans, and anyone who’s interested in a fast-paced thriller will enjoy this book
Recommended for grades 7 and up — some language, some kissing, and references to sex
