New York Times best-selling author Patrick Carman recently launched a six book series aimed at middle school kids.
The series is part sci-fi, part eco-mystery, and is filled with plenty of action adventure. The series also includes a companion website, VoyagersHQ.com, and app.
Below, you’ll have a chance to enter our giveaway for a $50 gift card, the Voyagers books, an app, and an iPhone Case.
My son, Joey, who is in middle school, recently had a chance to read the first book in the Voyagers series, Project Alpha. He said he was very impressed. Earth is about to run out of power, and a team of 12-year-old children must be selected to go into space in search of the necessary elements to build a new power source.
The crew goes on several dangerous missions and travels to fascinating planets on their search. Joey said the crew dynamics and space station setting in the book remind him of the components he loves about the Star Trek universe. He enjoyed reading about the robots, ZRKS, that help the crew, and he imagined what it would be like to be a part of the missions himself. He’s looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
The fun doesn’t stop with the books! On the website and app, readers are invited to join the crew and become part of the story. They can use codes and clues that they find in the books to unlock content in the app. They can also create custom Voyagers characters and experience the story through the eyes of their own virtual droid.
Don’t miss out on the action! The prize pack includes:
The first two books in the series, a $50 Visa gift card, and a branded iPhone 6 case and home GadgetGrip button to deck out your device while experiencing the Voyagers app.
