January 2013 Indie Next List
“Zack Nelson is moving to a new house, a new school -- and a new planet! Eight-year-old Zack and his family have loaded up their family space cruiser and are off to Nebulon, where his father has a new job and his mother plans to open a boutique selling Earth items to Nebulites. While he is very sad to have left his best friend, Bert, and his dog, Luna, Zack quickly finds some things to like about his new life ' like the 'Indoor Robotic Assistant,' who manages the house, and the bed that folds up into his ceiling every morning and never has to be made. This chapter book for beginning readers wonderfully addresses all the typical worries of a childhood move.”
