Middle grades can be a magical time for discovering SF, and debut author Rachel Searles is prepared to launch a new batch of readers with The Lost Planet series. Engage in a bit of time travel at MGRB, as we host her Launch Party a day before the book is technically on-sale – possibly with a guest appearance from her rocket scientist husband! Join Chase on his quest for identity, after he awakens on the planet Trucon with no memory of who he is, what role he may play in his universe, or who to trust.
Rachel also signs in San Diego on Friday 31 January 2014.
This is what the boy is told:
- He woke up on planet Trucon, inside of a fence line he shouldn't have been able to cross.
- He has an annirad blaster wound to the back of his head.
- He has no memory.
- He is now under the protection of a mysterious benefactor.
- His name is Chase Garrety.
This is what Chase Garrety knows:
- He has a message: "Guide the star."
- Time is running out.
