The Super-Secret Mission to the Center of the Moon (Pie)

(A book in the Octagon Valley Adventure series)
A novel by

In the second book in Melissa de la Cruz’s wacky new middle grade adventure series, the Octos find themselves on a mission to the moon. Which might not be made out of cheese after all.

After discovering in book one that they had every reason to feel a little bit different than their peers, Edwin Edgefield and the rest of his alien-on-earth crew are primed and ready to learn all they can about their home planet. Unfortunately, that planet has been destroyed, and the one person who can help them find out where they came from—Maureen (yuck)—has no intention of helping. In fact, she has just taken off in a rocket ship bound for the moon, where the enemy Yaks awaits with a new version of her planet-destroying machine, this time aimed at earth.

It will take every bit of Edwin, Julie, Kimmy and Dilip’s super abilities—both mental and physical—to stop Maureen this time. Can they pass through the gauntlet of tests Maureen has set for them and infiltrate the Yaks’ secret moon base before the bad guys can power up their earth-blaster, or will Maureen and the Yaks succeed in their vengeful mission?

Grab a moon pie and cuddle up with this unputdownable sequel to the book PW called “energetic” “fast-paced” and “imaginative!”
