International bestseller and multiple Dragon Award finalist Michaelbrent Collings invites you on a journey into the farthest reaches of space…and maybe even back again.
It was supposed to be a walk in the park—literally. Just a quick trip into Muir Woods to grab a few samples for a science lab, then back home again (for better or worse). But life doesn’t always go as planned, and a three-hour hike in the woods turned into a three-hundred-light-year trip to another galaxy when Max, Noah, Leya, and Chloe get kidnapped by a trio of aliens surveying Earth.
Now, light-years from home—from parents, from friends, from everything they know and love—four Earthlings are about to find themselves in the middle of an intergalactic war of extermination. A war that, if lost, will mean not only the death of their new friends, but the end of humanity.
On the bright side, their lab project is going to blow the teacher’s mind.
Assuming they can survive long enough to get home.
And assuming there’s still a home to get back to.
Mixing the action and sci-fi adventure of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games and Neil Shusterman’s Scythe; the high-concept fun of The Mandalorian and Star Wars; and the suspense, thrills, and humor of Stranger Things and Goonies, Michaelbrent Collings’ Light-Years From Home is an adventure like no other. Get your copy and begin the journey today!
I laughed out loud quite a bit while reading this. So I will leave you with a final quote that encapsulates the book perfectly.
“Running and not looking back, because looking back is, statistically, the number one killer of kids my age in every movie where something goes wrong in the woods.”
"Reading this book was the most fun I have had in a long time."
