Sci-Fi Junior High: Crash Landing

Sci-Fi Junior High: Crash Landing

Middle school in space! An alien dog! A mad scientist! Hundreds of illustrations! Sci-Fi Junior High is galactically good! James Patterson presents a hilarious space adventure featuring an average human kid getting into a universe of trouble.

Kelvin is the new kid at Sci-Fi Junior High–a floating space station filled with alien kids form across the universe. And he arrived just in time for the annual school dance: The Galactic Get Down!

Kelvin is desperate to take luminous Luna (her species literally glows), but now that his secret about not being a Mega Supergenius is out, Kelvin doesn’t have a shot. He has to think of a way to become super cool so everyone forgets he lied about his average intelligence…

Cue mad scientist Erik Failenheimer’s escape from his asteroid prison, an army of Pinions (any similarities to the MinionsTM is purely coincidental), and a battle to save Sci-Fi Junior High from imminent doom. Let’s dance!

“Saving the universe has never been so much fun!” — Gordon Korman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 39 Clues and Masterminds on Sci-Fi Junior High.
