"Cosmic Chaos" by C.M. Shelton

About this book:

  “Logan gasped. He needed to be in contact with the wrist remote when the program ended or … I don’t even know what will happen to me!
  The Cosmic
Twelve-year-old Logan lives inside the Luna Biodome on the moon. Not only is the moon dust making him sick, it also sets him apart from the other kids. While Logan is inside his new robot’s interactive program, his illness disappears and mysteries occur that he can’t explain.
  The Chaos
Logan meets an annoying yet undeletable program character named Amy. Their misadventures awaken him to a glitch—a secret that could return him to Earth to track down his missing mother. But only if Amy will cooperate before the moon’s lockdown and before the robot destroys him.
  This time-traveling science fiction story will grab young reader's attention ... from the garden of Eden to the futuristic moon colony, kids will be rooting for Logan and Amy to complete their mission!”

My personal Rating-
Pretty good! Like I’ve mentioned before, I’m not really into sci-fi stuff, but “Cosmic Chaos” was well done. I definitely liked the last half much better compared to the first half. I think it’s neat that the author’s daughter did the illustrations (very nice!), even though Maggie looking like the typical alien did take me back a bit. I wasn’t a fan of Nanny at all, but the ending was good. Logan’s mom was just awesome and truly I’d like a sequel just because of her and Amy (the homeschooler). ;)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
