Today is Sneak Peak #4: THE BURPSERS

The Martians have invited the Plutonians to Mars for a rematch of the infamous final soccer game of the 2014 Intergalactic Cup . . .


. . . but everybody knows that the game is really an excuse to vote the Plutonians out of the Intergalactic Soccer Federation.

You see, a few years ago, Pluto was demoted from “full planet” to “dwarf planet” status. The Martians believe that this makes Pluto ineligible to be a member of the Intergalactic Soccer Federation (the ISF). The Plutonians disagree. (If you’re starting to think that the Martians and Plutonians don’t agree on very much, you’re right – they don’t).

Even though the rematch is being called the FRIENDSHIP AND GOODWILL GAME, there is rampant cheating on both sides. Rumor is that the Martians are rigging the game in their favor. And a militant group of Plutonians who call themselves the Brotherhood United for the Restoration of Planetary Status (the “BURPSers”), have snuck some of their members onto Mars to make trouble before the game even starts.


It’s a bad situation, which becomes personal to Sawyer when he has to figure out whether his new friend, Venetio (the Plutonian stowaway), is a BURPSer or not. And also when he finds out that Sylvie may have had a bit more to do with that famous Martian victory than he realized. And when the kids uncover a plot that could have devastating planetary consequences . . .

But before they can save the planet, Sawyer and his friends have to complete their first mission, which is to find Sylvie’s missing dad. And to do that, they’re going to have to break into a secret science lab.

More on that tomorrow, in Sneak Peak #5!


PS: DINOSAUR BOY SAVES MARS hits the shelves on February 2, but there’s still time to preorder a copy from your favorite local indie, Barnes and Noble, or anywhere else you buy books!
