  • Take a peek inside this addictive read...

Synopsis

How amazing would it be to have a dad who's an astronaut?

Rocket launches, zero gravity, and flying through space like a superhero!

Jamie Drake's dad is orbiting the Earth in the International Space Station and Jamie ought to think it's cool but he just really misses him...

Hanging out at his local observatory, Jamie picks up a strange signal on his phone. It looks like alien life is getting closer to home. But space is a dangerous place and when his dad's mission goes wrong, can Jamie prove that he's a hero too?

A cosmic adventure for anyone who's ever looked at the stars.

“Packed with astrophysics, emotion and invention on a galactic scale, this is science fiction at its most moving and exciting.”  - The Guardian

“Told with the intelligence and heart we expect of Christopher Edge… Edge has found the equation that solves the problem of how to write a fun, intellectually challenging novel with an emotional centre. It’s a big tick.” - The Times
