" Our whole family really enjoys Stuart Gibbs' books! " said.

" Disappointing.....on so many levels. But especially because Mr. Gibbs decided it was appropriate to use a middle grade sci-fi mystery book to push an agenda on our kids. Homosexuality is not a subject I want my 8 1/2 year old to be exposed to yet- and if it was, I'd want to discuss it with her myself. I'd definitely not want to introduce the subject by having it subtly shoved down her throat in a book I consider to be nothing more than mind-candy/fluff that I let her read for fun. " said.

" This 3rd and final book in the Moon Base Alpha series as oxygen loss and the poisoning of the hated billionaire, Lars Sjoberg signal the end of the experiment of scientists' families on the moon. Again, our hero, Dash Gibson helps solve the poisoning case despite desperate peril for himself. The series provides food for thought about the future of space colonization and the role families will play. " said.

"Dash is on the hunt for clues again as yet another crime is committed on Moon Base Alpha. This time, he is recruited by Nina, the base commander, to hunt for clues. She realizes his ability for this as he has solved the past two cases and that folks won't suspect his investigation because he is a kid.

While a formulaic (yet creative and action packed) plot ensues, it is interrupted by Zan's appearance and an unexpected and sentimental ending.

Gibb's fans are in for another great installment!

Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC of this novel.

"Who doesn’t love a good Stuart Gibbs book? This one was enough to remind me of all the reasons I love Stuart Gibbs. His books are funny, mysterious, exciting, and very different. For one: they take place in places like a moon colony and a school for future government agents.

I only really had one problem with this book: Stuart Gibbs made Chang homosexual. I feel that it wasn’t necessary and it shouldn’t have been included. I was lucky enough to be unaware that gay people existed until I was in 6th grade. And let me just say, my life was much happier before that. I’m disappointed that Stuart Gibbs has put homosexuality in this book because it’s a book for KIDS. They don’t need to know about this stuff. Plus, they’re going to think that being gay is okay, which it’s not. The Bible says that those who practice homosexuality will not see Heaven.

Other than that one little problem, I found this book quite enjoyable. I loved the fact that anybody could’ve been the killer since Lars is just so unliked. That’s pretty hysterical. Also, I always enjoy Zan’s questions about humans and life on earth. Sometimes, she asks these questions that are common sense to us. Also, she makes me question myself a lot. Such as:

•”You eat things that are knowingly bad for you at the expense of your own personal health? That makes no sense.”

That’s all for now. Happy reading!!!

"This review will becoming from my 11 year old son.
I have read Stuart Gibbs books and I love every single one. I like how he writes it is fun, creative and awesome. I can't wait to read more because I love this Spy book series too.

My turn:
Stuart Gibbs is able to give kids of all ages books that parents will enjoy reading to their kids as well as kids reading them alone. Parents do not need to worry about language or themes that might not be appropriate for children of all ages.
The story is fun, and flows well with the different characters readers will meet.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Simon Schuster Books for Young Readers for the advance copy of Stuart Gibbs Waste of Space (Moon Base Alpha #3)

" Great book to read for relaxing. Too bad it's the last one in the series. Loved the in the future epilogue. " said.

"This has been my favorite kids mystery series in the last couple of years. Sooo sad the trilogy is finished now! As a NASA nerd I really enjoyed the moon base background to the books, using recent technology that's already available now on the ISS. Colorful characters and a very nice and meaningful ending. Plus: I thought it was very refreshing (and important) to insert homosexuality as something natural and positive into a children's book - more authors should do that.

The only thing that mollifies me is that I haven't read two books of Gibb's Fun Jungle series yet, so that's something to look forward to!
