What a fun read this book was! I won Leo Gray and the Lunar Eclipse in a GoodReads Giveaway and was excited to get it because it combined two genre’s I enjoy: middle grade fiction and sci fi.
Leo Gray is the eldest child of two parents who are very ‘unhip’ and do not appreciate the modern things of year 2113 and instead identify more with “old” Earth. Mr. Gray, especially, is very hard on modern life and the government, so that when there is a chance for Leo to enter a government rocket-building contest with the reward of getting a free ticket to go to school in Luna City (on the Moon), Leo’s mom enters him in secretly. Leo does eventually get to Luna City, but not without a few hiccups along the way. Once there he then makes friends with kids from different countries who all have unique talents and together they discover that they must help save Earth and Luna City from those who wish to destroy both.
