The Jamie Drake Equation
Publisher: Nosy Crow
Jamie’s dad is an astronaut. He's recently left Earth to stay on the International Space Station. Although it's cool to have an astronaut dad, Jamie misses him terribly.
While doing his homework at the observation lab one night, Jamie's phone picks up a up a weird signal. Could it be a message from aliens? A message that Jamie has to get to his father before it’s too late? But how do you rescue an astronaut without heading into space yourself?
After the amazing The Many Worlds of Albie Bright, Christopher Edge would easily be forgiven for a less ambitious follow-up. Instead, he has written a novel easily as good as the one before, filled with his trademark combination of wit, pathos and hilarity.
