A synopsis of May’s Moon
(Action Adventure/ Sci-Fi for 9-12 olds)
Michael May is wearing a space suit, standing on the edge of the world’s largest pool, about to find out what it’s like to be weightless. Beating thousands of others, the geeky boy they call ‘Micky Moon’ at home, is one of ten children from around the world accepted onto the ‘Children’s Moon Program’ (C.M.P) in Florida. If he can survive the g-force of a space shuttle launch, overcome his secret fear of water and pass the other battery of tests, he could win a place on the next mission to the moon.
As Bob Sturton from NASA subjects the candidates to pass or fail tests most teenagers can’t even imagine, thirteen-year-old Michael has to decide how desperate he is to be one of the top three. Some of the others seem willing to do almost anything. Is he? He’s nothing special here and only the final three will go on to a two-year astronaut-training programme, to decide who gets to go to the moon.
