Young Adult Young Adult • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Adam Verner delivers an adventure story set in the 22nd century, when humankind moves into the final frontier. Fossil fuels are depleted, so corporations are surface mining the moon, specifically for Helium-3. Sixteen-year-old miner and tinkerer Crater Trueblood is an orphan who works in the Moontown mining camp. Verner nimbly uses his voice to make Crater and those involved in his escapades instantly recognizable. In particular, Crater has a complex relationship with his sidekick, a gillie—a synthetic, semi-sentient life-form and smartphone rolled into one. Through his varied tone Verner consistently maintains the aura of uneasiness that is part of living in an environment in which one must constantly think about life-support systems.
