"Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, FIRE!"
Gemma, Cassi, Tycho and Ross, four young space cadets begin their first mission without an instructor - a mission that should have been routine, but which suddenly brings them near to disaster.
Adventure and realism are the twin themes of this, the first of a series of five 'Spacers' books.
