Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A classic novel from the mind of the storyteller who captures the imagination of readers from around the world, and across two generations.

First prize in the Skyway Soap slogan contest was an all-expenses-paid trip to the Moon. The consolation prize was an authentic space suit, and when scientifically minded high school senior Kip Russell won it, he knew for certain he would use it one day to make a sojourn of his own to the stars. But "one day" comes sooner than he thinks when he tries on the suit in his backyard — and finds himself worlds away, a prisoner aboard a space pirate's ship, and heading straight for what could be his final destination.

Review:

"Heinlein's writing stands the test of time, and contemporary youth will be inspired by the visions of space travel their own grandparents might have had at their age." School Library Journal

About the Author

Robert A. Heinlein (1907–1988) is widely recognized as one of the greatest science fiction authors of all time, a status confirmed in 1974 when the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America gave him their first Grand Master award for lifetime achievement. A four-time Hugo Award winner, Heinlein's best known works include Starship Troopers, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, and the sensational bestseller Stranger In a Strange Land.
