Tallulah has her learner's permit, and can go on short errands in the mail craft. So, tasked with delivering some equipment, and Sanity in the copilot seat, Tallulah demonstrates her great pilot abilities as she arrives safely at 2 different space stations. But, they just missed Tallulah's dad, who needs the important turbopumps, so the girls decide to take them to him anyway. But, passing through a dangerous debris field gets even more complicated when their destination explodes 
right in front of them. Now Tallulah and Sanity are caught up in a possible space war. 

This series gets better and better. I was on the edge of my seat. The tri-color illustrations are well detailed and contribute to the story. I love that Tallulah and Sanity act like kids, they do dumb things, get in trouble and have consequences. I loved all the questions about what it's like to live on land - the girls have been in space their whole lives. Although part of a series, Shortcuts can totally stand on its own.
