My name is Dash. I am a 12 year old boy and I am a very good detective. The book is written from my perspective.
My name is Zan. I am an alien from a planet much more developed than Earth. I can make myself appear into certain people's minds and talk to them through their minds. I choose to do this with Dash.
My name is Kira. I am a 12 year old girl who craves attention because of how little my dad gives me. I never do anything too bad though. I very much dislike Roddy, but I like Dash.
My name is Nina. I am very serious. Most people don't like me and kids call me Nina the Machina behind my back. I don't have any personal belongings with me on the moon.
My name is Patton. I am probably the richest teenager in the world. I like to beat people up.
My name is Roddy. I am very cool (some people might not agree). I am not annoying (some people might not agree). I am 13 years old.
My name is Violet and I am 6 years old. I think I am funny and cute. I am Dash's sister.
Patton Sjoberg is mad at Roddy. Patton thinks that Dash is involved with Roddy so Patton tries to beat Dash up. Dash runs away through the low-gravity moon base. Then Dash leads him into the bathroom and shoves Patton's face into the space urinal-vacuum.
The adults find out that Nina is missing and Dash is wondering where she could be. She obviously isn't inside the base so that means she must be outside on the surface of the moon.
Even though the moon is smaller than Earth, it is still gigantic. Nina could be anywhere. The red circle represents where the moon base is compared to the rest of the moon.
Dash, Kira, and Violet are looking for clues of Nina's disappearance. Chang (the second in command), Dash's mom, and his dad come in and see that they found a secret stash of moon rocks in Nina's bead. Moon rocks are extremely rare and can be sold for millions of dollars. They also find some code messages asking for more moon rocks from the pseudynom "Charlie". They come to the conclusion that Nina is out looking for rocks and she is wearing Lily's space suit.
