  About The Book

Everyone said sending teenagers into space would be their opportunity of a lifetime...

It's been decades since anyone last set foot on the moon. But three ordinary teens are about to change that--and their lives--forever. Mia knows this will be her punk band's ticket to fame and fortune. Midori believes it's her way out of her restrictive lifestyle in Japan. And Antoine just wants to get as far away from his ex-girlfriend as possible. But little do they know that something sinister is waiting for them on the dark side of the moon. And in the black vastness of space, no one is coming to save them... Strap yourself in for this chilling adventure from a young Norwegian author on the rise. You'll want to keep your lights on long after you've read the last page.
