Eleven-year-old Angel Song Hammer keeps secrets, the kind that could affect every child on planet Earth, if ‘The Girl from the Moon’ doesn’t prevent a terrible wrong from occurring.
Famous as the only child born at Mankind’s first moon station, Luna One, Angel leaves her family and scientific friends behind, as the lunar base is threatened by subversion.
Physically weak, socially clumsy, Angel befriends a surly, but intelligent boy, George Ivanosky, and his twin brothers, Morgan and Jack.
In the streams and fields surrounding Medda, Washington, Angel’s new home, the children discover three-eyed frogs and a six-legged coyote fetus.
George suspects Duncan Tibor Mauduit, a rich industrialist, is a member of the 11th Hour, a sinister group bent on disrupting Earth’s central world government. George’s journalist father tried to expose the 11th Hour, but was instead imprisoned.
Stealing computer files, Angel uncovers a heinous plot, a genetic altering experiment is set to unleash upon Earth’s children, beginning at Medda. The 11th Hour’s plot might asunder the fragile alliances currently existing between New Earth governments.
With no clear link to any person or organization, Angel refuses to involve Lieutenant-General Achilles Rex Hammer, her father and commander at the lunar station, armed with only childish suspicions. The children leave at night to film the evidence they need.
Angel disarms her powerful opponents with innocent youth, and suffers the consequences of her decisions. The brothers become orphans, and the deadly substance that the children sought to destroy contaminates --- her.
Innocent youth is vastly over rated as a compelling description of character. You've got more of a synopsis here than a hook.
You're drowing in names. The idea that powerful oppoents can be disarmed by innocent youth is a literary device from the 50's....the 1850s.
There's no connection between paragraphs. It's like a series of telegrams.
This is a mess.
