Fourteen-year-old millionaire Tony Pandy solves mysteries from the seat of his wheelchair. Not because he wants to, but because he has to. Losing his home if he doesn’t. This time Tony has to find out why the Hindenburg disaster happened. Then there’s the problem of having squatters on the estate, one of whom just might be the love of Tony’s life. Book 2 of The Tony Pandy Mysteries.
From the outside, Tony looks like he has quite the life:
Until you notice the wheelchair. Or that he only speaks with his mother by intercom. Or that he doesn't seem to know who his real father is.
And now, to save his home from a mysterious trust, Tony will have to ride in a broken-down motorcycle with someone who may not be who he seems, and solve the biggest mystery of all—Who he really is.
Benny wants a pet—a dog or a cat. You know, the kind of pet everyone else has. But other kids don't have his mom. She likes to do things differently.
So Benny doesn't know what to expect when he first opens the pet carrier. Certainly not that his neighbors will want to kick is family out of town—he just got here! And he was just about to make the baseball team, too.
What will he do?

Fun little story. Reminded me a bit of Hitch Hiker's Guide, and I mean that very complimentary.

A fun read. I immediately downloaded the sequel.
Pierce has produced a fully imagined universe, a sort of Firefly meets Star Trek—that he can take in many directions.

I am always on the look out for hard SF. When I do find it, usually the characters are lacking. Just bots to show off the shiny tech.
Not here. Carver has written plausible SF that has both science and heart.
