CRATER (Disney) X FOUNDATION (Apple) X CENTER OF GRAVITY by Shaunta Grimes – “I go where you go kid. Let’s look at some stars …” Space elevators are the future, but when Mike’s crazy-rich Grandma remains stuck in the past sometimes you have to leave Earth to find home.
Sometimes you have to leave Earth to find home …
12-year-old geeky Micah “Mike” Thomas just wants his mom and his life back. When Mom passes away from a brain aneurysm, it’s up to Mike and his family to start all over again. Mike’s new normal means navigating the whims of his greedy, ultra-wealthy grandma. If Mike doesn’t, she’s going to make his dad’s life as an unemployed widower more miserable than it already is.
Dad has news when Mike finishes school. A new job means moving to a new home in Santa Fe, and a new friend (Dom the AI). Mike misses mom’s quiet ‘chill’ – the thing that helped make everything better. Mom’s chill would help with Dad’s new job and Grandma with her secrets and agendas – but Mike’s inner voice keeps whispering ‘but she isn’t here … and it’s all YOUR fault.’ The new normal gets put to the test when Dad introduces his project: the world’s first space elevator. Then Mike destroys the room with a fart during his first boy-girl dance. Now Grandma’s control means she’s going to destroy the space elevator and nobody can stop her. Mike will stop his grandmother from destroying the space elevator—even though it means losing his best friend.
Complete at 65000 words, MIKE.SIERRA.ECHO is a Middle Grade hard scifi space thriller set in Boston, Santa Fe, and Ecuador 150 years in the future. It will appeal to readers of ‘We Dream of Space’ by Erin Entrada Kelly and ‘Rebecca Reznik Reboots the Universe’ by Samara Shanker.
Young adult audience, typically ranging from middle school-aged readers to young adults in their early twenties. However, the themes and content of each book may appeal to a broader range of readers who enjoy YA fiction and coming-of-age stories.
