In Crash Landing: Hyperspace High, Book 1. Zac Harrison serves up a delicious premise for a kid’s book series: a boy, John Riley, from Earth, gets picked up by the wrong school bus and ends up in a high-school populated by aliens.
Given a silver-tongued performance in a British accent by Michael Fenton Stevens, Crash Landing follows John as he attempts to befriend classmates who have silver hair and resemble insects and survives a life-threatening first field trip.
Stevens has the polished tone of a nature-documentary narrator but effectively conveys tension and levity in this charming tale that’s sure to appeal to kids who love science fiction.
When John Riley gets on the wrong coach, he ends up at an elite academy on an enormous spaceship, where his classmates are aliens, the food is disgusting, and the penalty for failing exams is harsh. Can he show that he deserves a place at Hyperspace High?
