A New York Public Library Best Book for the Teen Age: Stewart jumps at the chance to travel into space, but it turns out his mission is more dangerous than he thought Stewart Hale is about to turn thirteen, and all he wants is to become a rocket pilot, just like his mom. But ever since she died in a crash, Stewart’s dad won’t hear of it. He refuses even to bring Stewart to the space museum anymore. Virtual reality videos of his hero, pilot Val Thorsten, aren’t enough. Worst of all, Stewart realizes he’s beginning to forget some of his favorite memories of his mom, and wonders if something in the past is being hidden from him. After bumping into a grizzled old space traveler, Stewart finds his chance to escape to the moon. But in a beat-up craft with a pilot who’s well past his prime, this isn’t quite the adventure that Stewart had in mind.

But after his mother’s death, his father has forbidden any talk of Stewart going into space. And Stewart suspects there’s something that is being kept hidden from him, something they don’t want him to remember from his past. A chance encounter with a washed-up old spacer gives Stewart an unexpected opportunity to sneak off on his own mission to the Moon. But when the old spacer’s intentions turn out to be less than honorable, Stewart realizes he hasn’t found his big break—he’s been shanghaied!

Walking on the Moon By Susan SizemoreAward-winning chili maker Claudia Cameron comes to Greece in search of adventure and romance-and is kidnapped by a crew of hungry, time-traveling space miners in search of a cook.Instead of a Mediterranean holiday, she finds herself walking on the moons of Mars. But once she's shanghaied on board the HATTON, Claudia must contend with not only the alien environment, real live aliens, the ship's hardhearted captain, but also her growing attraction to sexy ship's officer Denys DuChamp.Denys is on a mission from a war-torn future. He's determined to do anything to save his time-no matter what. If it means keeping Claudia-who continues to refer to him as an "alien lizard terrorist"-prisoner, so be it. Even if it means destroying their burgeoning love-so be it. Denys can be as stubborn and pigheaded as a bulldog when he's on a mission.However, Claudia isn't exactly the helpless prisoner type. She has a few tricks up her proverbial sleeve that come in mighty handy when she has to save her world-and her man-from the evil alien Sirens.Note: This book is a reissue; it was previously released several years ago by another publisher.
