Their mission: find Ray and recover the MAX 1 before it falls into dangerous hands. Finding a clue to the whereabouts of the MAX 1 in the Utah desert, the boys set out to investigate. Instead they find themselves outnumbered and outgunned in a high tech, high-altitude air battle. They've flown into the middle of a subversive plot posing a deadly threat to the top levels of the U.S. space program and the U.S. government! =============== From inside the book: CHOPPER ATTACK Aloft in the blue MAX-2, Frank pointed to the southwest. "Look!" Down below was the MAX-1. As he and Joe watched, their quarry hit the turboboost, and the MAX-1 rocketed away at supersonic speed. "There are the two Apaches," Joe said, indicating two predatory helicopters swooping toward them. "They must have spotted him, too." "Too bad they didn't catch him," said Frank. "I guess it's up to us. Let's go." Frank started to bank in pursuit of the MAX-1, but the two Apaches kept coming, straight for the MAX-2. "What's wrong with those chopper jocks? Can't they tell the difference between the MAX-1 and the MAX-2?" shouted Frank. Then realization dawned on his face. "Didn't someone tell them to go after the red one?" As if in answer, the lead chopper launched a pair of missiles straight at them! "They've mistaken us for the bad guys!" Joe yelled. "Let's get out of here!"

Flight: A Novel

by Sherman Alexie

Sherman Alexie is one of our most gifted and accomplished storytellers and a treasured writer of huge national stature. His first novel since Indian Killer is a powerful, fast, and timely story of a troubled foster teenager--a boy who is not a "legal" Indian because he was never claimed by his father--who learns the true meaning of terror. The journey for this young hero begins as he's about to commit a massive act of violence. At the moment of decision, he finds himself shot back through time and resurfaced in the body of an FBI agent during the civil rights era. Here he will be forced to see just why "Hell is Red River, Idaho, in the 1970s." Red River is only the first stop in a shocking sojourn through moments of violence in American history. He will continue traveling back to inhabit the body of an Indian child during the battle at Little Bighorn and then ride with an Indian tracker in the nineteenth century before materializing as an airline pilot jetting through the skies today. During these frantic trips through time, his refrain grows: "Who's to judge?" and "I don't understand humans." When finally, blessedly, our young warrior comes to rest again in his own contemporary body, he is mightily transformed by all he's seen. This is Sherman Alexie at his most brilliant--making us laugh while he's breaking our hearts. Time Out has said that "Alexie, like his characters, is on a modern-day vision quest," and this has never been clearer than in Flight, where he seeks nothing less than an understanding of why human beings hate. Simultaneously wrenching and deeply humorous, wholly contemporary yet steeped in American history, Flight is irrepressible, fearless, and groundbreaking Alexie.

The Flight of Gemma Hardy

by Margot Livesey

When her widower father drowns at sea, Gemma Hardy is taken from her native Iceland to Scotland to live with her kind uncle and his family. But the death of her doting guardian leaves Gemma under the care of her resentful aunt, and it soon becomes clear that she is nothing more than an unwelcome guest at Yew House. When she receives a scholarship to a private school, ten-year-old Gemma believes she's found the perfect solution and eagerly sets out again to a new home. However, at Claypoole she finds herself treated as an unpaid servant. To Gemma's delight, the school goes bankrupt, and she takes a job as an au pair on the Orkney Islands. The remote Blackbird Hall belongs to Mr. Sinclair, a London businessman; his eight-year-old niece is Gemma's charge. Even before their first meeting, Gemma is, like everyone on the island, intrigued by Mr. Sinclair. Rich (by Gemma's standards), single, flying in from London when he pleases, Hugh Sinclair fills the house with life. An unlikely couple, the two are drawn to each other, but Gemma's biggest trial is about to begin: a journey of passion and betrayal, redemption and discovery, that will lead her to a life of which she's never dreamed. Set in Scotland and Iceland in the 1950s and '60s, The Flight of Gemma Hardy-a captivating homage to Charlotte BrontË's Jane Eyre-is a sweeping saga that resurrects the timeless themes of the original but is destined to become a classic all its own.

When the Dragonfly accidentally crash-lands during its investigative pursuit of an anomaly in Eau's ammonia- laden seas, the crew aboard Prometheus plan a rescue mission while deciphering the data coming in through "Jill, the Dragonfly's onboard computer, at breakneck speed.
