The first middle grade novel in an exciting new series from acclaimed author Diana Peterfreund, perfect for fans of The Goonies and City of Ember.
Gillian Seagret doesnât listen to people who say her fatherâs a crackpot. His conspiracy theories about the lost technology of Cold War-era rocket scientist Dr. Aloysius Underberg may have cost him his job and forced them to move to a cottage in the sticks, but Gillian knows heâs right and plans to prove it.
When she discovers a missing page from Dr. Underbergâs diary in her fatherâs office, she thinks sheâs found a big piece of the puzzleâa space-themed riddle promising to lead to Underbergâs greatest invention. Enlisting the help of her brother, Eric, her best friend, Savannah, and Howard, their NASA-obsessed schoolmate, Gillian sets off into the ruins of a vast doomsday bunker deep within the earth.
But they arenât alone inside its dark and flooded halls. Now Gillian and her friends must race to explore Omega City and find the answers they need. For while Gillian wants to save her dadâs reputation by bringing Dr. Underbergâs secrets to light, others will stop at nothing to make sure they stay buried . . . forever.
