School Library Journal - 03/01/2021 Gr 4–8—A humorous science fiction adventure that is perfect for Star Wars fans looking for something new in the genre. Trouble is a shapeshifter who escaped from a prison and has no memory of their past. They stow away onboard a ship called the Hindsight disguised as a young white boy. But the Galactic Government, called Starleague, is after them, determined to bring Trouble back to the prison. To avoid a confrontation with Starleague, the Captain decides to help Trouble find the other shapeshifters. They must seek out an all-knowing being called "The Knowledge," who might have answers about the other shapeshifters and where Trouble came from. But a secret is revealed that will change everything. This is a new sci-fi classic for kids. Trouble's engaging narration seamlessly explains spaceship terms like bridge, hatch, mess, and galley. The vocabulary is perfectly blended in with an engaging, laugh-out-loud story that kids will enjoy. VERDICT A great choice for middle grade collections and for readers looking for humorous, action-packed science fiction.—Patrick Tierney, Pascoag P.L., RI - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
