About the Book: Lamar “Buzz'” and his family live in the 21st century and are moving to a space station called CLEO-7. He meets Daphne "Deebee'' and Theodore "Tag" on the space shuttle. Deebee is very smart and is able to fix anything, which is good, because Vladimir "Mir" (who lives on the station already) is up to mischief when they arrive at the new station. Deebee changes Buzz’s wrist interface and he accidentally contacts Mir. Mir plans going on getting even. The mess up continues as Buzz has Mir’s zip suit and the two of them are launched in a shuttle. Mir was showing Buzz how he made the drones go crazy. They are Iaunched into space and are unable to get back by themselves. Kumiko "Miko" is able to help them and so does the zipsuit. They get back to the CLEO-7 where Mir apologizes for what he has done.
About the Author: Robert Elmer was born the year after the first Sputnik satellite was launched. He lives with his wife, three kids and dog.
What I Thought: I liked this book. Having the children living in space was a very good idea, because it shows that God’s principles work everywhere. I am glad everyone was able to easily forgive Mir. I really did not like how Mir did so many naughty things to everyone at CLEO-7. I liked the drones. It would be a lot of fun to have some of them to do work around my house.
Would I Recommend: Yes, I would. This book does a very good job of teaching Colossians 3:13, the Bible verse that this book is based on.
