Title:       Cleopatra in Space

Author:  Mike Maihack

Target:   Grade 3-7

Series:    Yes, but the next book is not due out until April 2015

What this book is about: 
Cleopatra (yes that Cleopatra) is about to turn fifteen.  She is bemoaning Algebra and wants to cause some trouble with her slingshot.  However, with the discovery of an ancient building she is transported into the future where she is supposed to save the galaxy.  She acquires some cool ray guns, but sadly can’t get out of Algebra!

Why I love this book: 
Cleopatra has confidence and an attitude which make her a great main character.  No one is putting Cleopatra in a corner!  Of course in the future there is a high council of talking cats that only adds to the fun as she attends school where she excels in combat training and rides a hovercraft shaped like a sphinx.  What is not to love?

Who this book is for: 
Fans of Zita the Spacegirl and Amulet will feel right at home with this series.  There is the same high quality graphics and engaging story telling.

Final thoughts:
Cleopatra is no pushover.  I have no doubt she will save the galaxy!
