The characters in this book are true to the ones on the Youtube SpacePop girls episodes.They are adorable, easy to relate to, and draw the reader into the story. The plot is engaging and full of action and adventure. The included graphic novel-formatted scenes adds depth and character to the novel. Fans of the Youtube show, science fiction, and adventure will enjoy reading this book.
