The Aurora Public Library District will be having a Tween Book Club twice over the summer. 

We will be discussing the book Space Case by Stuart Gibbs!  

 

12-year old Dashiell Gibson is the very first human to successfully move to and live on the moon.  This sounds exciting…but Dashiell is lonely. Kids are not allowed out of the moon base. Worse, the one kid who Dashiell is there with has no interest in anything other than video games.

Dasheill is bored…until the bases top scientist is found dead.   Dashiell knows that Dr. Holtz had discovered something new about the moon.  Dash thinks that someone has killed Dr. Holtz to keep him quiet.

If this sounds interesting to you please stop by the library to pick up your book and then plan to join us:
