By Michael L. Thal
Solstice Publishing

248 pages

One minute 16-year old Joshua Bloom was in Central Park running for his life from the zoo’s escaped lion and the next instant he awoke on board a spaceship. Joshua soon learned he was abducted by a group of teen aliens from Oceana, a doomed planet. They are on a mission to find a new home for the remaining members of their civilization. They have their sights set on Earth and they have tapped Joshua to be their ambassador. Not only has he been abducted by aliens but he is inducted into the Oceanian Space Corps. While adapting to the routine and duties of everyday life on a spaceship, Joshua must also cope with a command structure dominated by women – the positive and the negative. In The Abduction of Joshua Bloom, author Michael Thal boldly goes where no other YA authors dare go these days in his creation of a utopian world where smart young space travelers work together toward solutions to the Universe’s most challenging puzzles – as opposed to a dystopian world where teens struggle to survive. Go ahead and teleport yourself into this intergalactic adventure of a lifetime for one brave young Earthling. Fans of the TV series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will like this book. ~ Copyright (c) 2014 by Peggy Tibbetts
