FROM BEST-SELLING AUTHORS TRAVIS S. TAYLOR AND JODY LYNN NYE. A teenage girl and her fellow Bright Sparks must do what it takes to stay alive and achieve success in this sequel to Moon Beam.
RACE AROUND THE MOON!
Barbara Winton and the rest of the Bright Sparks, Dr. Keegan Bright’s team of youthful scientists, are competing in the first ever race to completely circle the Moon! The Sparks—along with twenty- five other teams—have to count on one another as they face thousands of kilometers of unknown dangers, where a simple accident can have fatal consequences.
A TEST OF ALLIANCE AND FRIENDSHIP
The Sparks forge ties with racers from all over, but also must deal with a former Spark, Pam, a threatening figure whose disappearance from the Sparks program is shrouded in mystery.
A LIFE AND DEATH FINISH
While the Sparks compete in the race, Dr. Bright himself is part of a groundbreaking project to seek out rare minerals underneath a crater. Then on the far side of the Moon, in the airless, frozen depths beneath the lunar surface, disaster strikes—and only the Bright Sparks are close enough to help him!
