The Daily Booktalk: Waiting on Wednesday: Waste of Space by Stuart Gibbs
Waste of Space by Stuart Gibbs. Moon Base Alpha series #3. 336 p. Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, April 24, 2018. 9781481477796.
Synopsis via author's website: After solving a murder on the moon and locating a missing base commander, all Dashiell Gibson wants to do is have a calm thirteenth birthday. But that plan goes down the tubes when someone tries to poison trillionaire space tourist Lars Sjoberg — and Dash gets forced into helping the investigation.
The problem is: everyone hated Lars — even his own family. Every other Moonie has a motive, but Dash needs to figure out who it is fast. Because the culprit is willing to do anything to protect their identity, and Dash’s life now hangs in the balance.
I enjoy Stuart Gibbs' books and they circulate briskly at my school. My book club read Space Case one month and many of them went on to read Spaced Out.
