Journey to Juno
Zack Nelson and his friend Drake Taylor sat in the home stadium of the Creston City Comets. A bright orange field spread out below them.
“Okay, Drake,” Zack said. “I know I’m still the new kid on Nebulon. And I’ve never seen a galactic blast game before, but I have one question: Where are the players?”
Drake smiled and pointed to both sides of the field.
Zack looked down and saw two teams of robots. Suddenly a whistle blew, and all the robots scrambled out onto the field.
“So people don’t play galactic blast? Robots do?” Zack asked.
“The robots pitch and hit and run and field,” explained Drake. “But people operate the robots using remote control units.”

My favorite parts are the galactic blast game (it is similar to baseball except there are robots playing), recess at Zack's school where everything is 3-D holographic images, the rainbow river in a crystal cave on Juno, and the galaxy gemmite that Zack finds on Juno. I also loved when a life-size holographic image of his Earth friend appears in Zack's room because he calls him on a hyperphone. I give this book one hundred stars! There is a "to be continued" at the end so you have to read the next book see what's in store. I can't wait to find out what happens!!!
