In 2041 twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is a resident of Moon Base Alpha, and at the moment he is faced with a number of problems: coping with the nasty Sjoberg twins, finding out how the commander of the base has managed to disappear from a facility no bigger than a soccer field, and dealing with the alien Zan who communicates with him telepathically from afar--and who is hiding a secret which may threaten the whole Earth.

When space commander Nina goes missing at moon base alpha, it's up to Dashiell and his friend, Kira, to find her. Along the way Dashiell makes friends with an alien called Zan, avoids Patton and Lilly Sjoberg, two snobby kids who are brothers and sister and are after Dashiell with a vengeance. He also avoids meteor showers while out on the moon surface with a rover, thanks to Kira's epic driving skills. But can they find Nina before it's to late? And who is this Charlie? Also avoid Cesar Marquez.

Spaced out is a great mystery. I love all the cool facts in the book, and it takes place on the moon.

Spaced out really made me interested. The setting was in space and they give you some non-fiction facts about space when you finish a chapter.

Dashiell Gibson lives on the moon with his family in a facility called Moon Base Alpha. Both Dashiell’s parents are scientists and that is how he ended up living on the moon. His parents are working on experiments and they are helping to make the moon a livable place for other people in the future. There are other scientists and their families who live on the moon too. The commander, Nina Stack, is in charge of the entire project. One night, Nina goes missing and the last person to see her was Dashiell. Everyone is looking for Nina but they can’t find her. This is very puzzling because the Moon Base unit covers a small area so there are only so many places that she could be. It looks like it is up to Dashiell to solve this mystery.
