Exclusive Excerpt!

At some point, I must have fallen asleep.
I say that for two reasons. First, my chin was wet with
drool, and I hardly ever slobber on myself when I’m awake. And second, I was no
longer on Earth.
I sat bolt upright and stared out the window as distant
stars whizzed past in a blur. There were no planets in sight, and judging by
the swirling purple nebula ahead of me, this wasn’t the way to Nana’s house. I
checked the navigation screen and felt my mouth drop open. The flashing beacon
that represented my ship was halfway between Earth and Fasti.
(So you see, it is totally possible to steal a spaceship on
accident.)
I guess my hand hit the EXECUTE button when I fell asleep.
And because it would take just as long for me to turn around and go home as it
would to finish my journey, it made sense to keep going, right? Either way, my
parents would ground me into the afterlife, so I might as well earn the
sentence, right?
Right.
An electric thrill rushed through my veins when I thought
about the possibilities that lay ahead of me. Anything could happen on this
trip. Literally anything. I could discover a brand-new element. Or meet a
secret race of aliens. Or invent a new energy source. Or eat so much chocolate
that I puked. Either way, I had complete freedom to make this journey into
whatever I wanted, and once I realized that, there was no freaking way I could
turn back. It was like the universe had dropped a gift in my lap, a gift I had
no intention of returning.
I wiped the drool off my chin and smiled.
“Hold onto your stars, Fasti. Here I come.”
