Gr 7 Up–Squad 312 is racing to save the galaxy after the disastrous battle at Terra, but they’re not all in the same place, much less the same time. Thrown forward into a dismal future and centuries into the past, our favorite misfits must figure out how to stop the Ra’haam and how to get back to their own time. The stakes have never been higher, but this time they don’t even have one another. Kaufman and Kristoff are masters at planting humor into high-stakes action sequences, and this book is no exception. Romance, space plant horror, and the end of life as we know it may be a little melodramatic as the story unfolds, but with such a satisfying ending it’s hard to care. While the story wants to be ethnically diverse the truth is: they’re mostly aliens.
VERDICT A worthwhile conclusion to a highly hyped series.
