It’s 1977. Mickey Price is a kid growing up in an orphanage in Orlando; Trace Daniels just won her first go-kart championship in Nevada; Jonah Trotsky is a budding scientist In Illinois. They don’t know each other yet, but they are all being visited by men in short-sleeved white shirts, thin black ties, distinctive gold-colored glasses, men who have been watching and studying them. They are invited to a NASA camp, but this camp isn’t for summer fun. It’s a training camp for a mission unlike anything they ever dreamed of, an adventure full of danger, thrills, fun, and an interesting cast of characters, not all of which are human.
