Like his fellow lunarnauts--otherwise known as Moonies--living on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon.
What no one back on earth knows, though, is that life on the moon is nowhere near as exciting as it sounds. Kids aren't allowed on the lunar surface, meaning they're trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their time--and the only other kid Dash's age spends all his time hooked into virtual reality games.
But when Dr. Ronald Holtz turns up dead--he went onto the lunar surface without his helmet properly affixed--Dash senses there's foul play afoot. The problem is, no one believes him. But when Dash finds out Dr. Holtz was on to an important new discovery, he wonders who might not want his secret to get out.
