Mr. Flinn's best students go to the space museum a few hours away from Tellis, their planet. But Mr. Flinn is fed up with them. They argue. And they don't get along. They certainly aren't setting an example for the best and brightest Tellis has to offer. But on the way home, Mr. Flinn is knocked out when their self-driving space bus is hit by a space rock, which knocks out the engine. The eight sixth graders have to figure out how to work together, especially when they learn something more sinister than a rock disabled their bus. This series of short novels was designed to engage a broad spectrum of struggling readers. No longer will upper-elementary students have to read material junior to their maturity and interests. Characters are age appropriate and come from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Science ficion, sports, paranormal, realistic life, historical fiction, and fantasy are just a few of the many genres. Books are no higher than a 1.5 reading level, with illustrations on every spread that support visual literacy and draw kids into the text. Each book is around 70 pages.
