Waste of Space by Stuart Gibbs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Stuart Gibbs is always a favorite author with my MG students and this book fits right in to their sense of humor and adventure. I'm not sure that there will be any further Moon Base Alpha books, which is a pity. The mystery of who poisoned Lars is technically the focus but really it's about the relationships and Dash's life on the base. Even though this is set in a moon base the descriptions of the spaces and food will resonate with any reader who has eaten institutional food or stayed in a lower-end motel/hotel.
