Funny fiction starring girls is always welcome, and this space camp adventure is hoot. Lamar Giles knows how to set up a joke and pay it off, and his cast of characters is bizarre but likable. Wiki and Leen are engaging protagonists -- funny, whip-smart, and never mean in their banter. Giles and illustrator Morgan Bissant have created a fictional universe brimming with wonder and wit.
