Language: G (0 swears 0 'f'); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (peril) 



12 yo Sanity and Tallulah are back and all the kids are going to a planet on a field trip. After a 15 hour spaceship ride, they arrive at their destination to discover that the field trip has been cancelled - their sponsor had been reassigned and no one had let the field trip know. Sanity's sister, Prudence, manages to talk an acquaintance into letting them land at the docking station, but when an asteroid hits and the children barely escape with their lives, it's up to Sanity and Tallulah to rescue the planet's inhabitants and figure out a plan to get everyone safely back home.

I really loved the adventure in book #2 - but no worries, it stands on its own, so read them in any order. There's a space pirate, a collapsing planet, broken spacecraft, alien life forms and a bunch of really smart kids, plus, Sanity and Tallulah are doing their own thing, again, which gets them in more trouble than everyone else - but also sets them up to save the day so it's all good. I love this series, I hope Molly Brooks writes more!
