The Luminess of Mars Part 2
By Brent LeVasseur
Gilbert Sullivan is just an ordinary boy who lives in Nebraska. At least he was until that night. The night he met Aoléon, the night he went to Mars.
Picking up where part 1 left us. We experience Gilbert's first full day on Mars including attending the Martian Space Academy with Aoléon. Martian school is very similar to school here on Earth. Disguised as a Martian all too soon Gilbert's disguise is seen through. But this doesn't interfere in any way with Gilbert and Aoléon's day.
And even more exciting is attending Zero-G training - floating and spinning in a weightless environment is unlike anything Gilbert has ever experienced.
But all is not fun and games (or even school). There is a threat on Mars and something is wrong. Gilbert experiences this when he briefly connects with the Lumimess. And then there is the request that Aoléon received to spy on the Luminon. What's a Martian girl and a farm boy from Nebraska to do?
Aoléon the Martian Girl should appeal to preteens and young teens alike. The illustrations throughout are colorful and fun. The images though are more than colorful - they are vivid! They bring this world to life. Though not a graphic novel the illustrations will be an added plus for those who appreciate illustrations throughout their reading journey.
And the adventure continues...
