Life is never more complicated then when you have to choose between freedom...
A class freak, a science geek, and a girl from outer space. How much trouble can they get in? They're wanted by the Australian government, Coebri space pirates, and a silver man from the Universal Unity. There isn't enough science in the universe to keep them safe, but they'll have to try!
"Thanks so much for the chance to read your book - with it's cliff hanging ending!" - Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.
“Very awesome and amazing and once you start reading you just can’t stop!!” – Sarah.
"I took your book home and read it and I think it is fabulous. In the beginning it looked like a regular young person's story about school bullies and then the story really took off when the space ship took off. I love the creatures and worlds you created. I think you have managed to combine the science into it in a really good way. It does not slow the story down but adds an extra dimension to the story for those that want it. I think it would make an exciting movie too."
- Nikki, Self published author.
