Gr 3-7–Sanity and Tallulah are back with another madcap adventure through space. The two friends, along with Sanity’s older sister Prudence, take an overnight class field trip to a “planetoid” in the Apis system. Trouble ensues as the group is nearly turned back, and then an asteroid wreaks havoc and sends the group into pandemonium. In true Sanity and Tallulah fashion, the girls end up far from their class on the surface of the planet, where they must fight pirates and work with rebels to save their classmates. Brooks once again engages readers with nonstop action and adventure. The anxiety and excitement of an overnight trip will resonate with readers despite the out-of-this-world setting. Sanity and Tallulah remain relatable characters, and Prudence is a strong addition to the cast. The muted reds and blues bring the outer space environment to life.
VERDICT This exciting, funny sci-fi adventure will captivate fans of the first installment as well as new readers
