Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

This is the story of Bain, an orphaned young man. He always tells the other orphans that he is a "spacer", which means his family consists of space travelers and space is in his blood. No one believes him, especially the bully of the orphanage. He is teased by Toly and his gang.

One day, the whole orphanage is put in danger when the horrible Mashrami, an enemy that breeds their ships--not assemble them like the rest of the galaxy-- arrive on the planet to destroy it. All the children are to be evacuated in a cargo ship under the command of Lin, a female spacer.

She recognizes the spacer in Bain and takes him under her wing to teach and train him on that voyage. For the first time he feels important, especially when the other kids see him as a real spacer and, per the commander, a crew member of the Sunsinger.

He gets to see and feel, firsthand, the music and the wonders of the universe. He also has to learn how to be humble and to grow up faster than the other children under his care.

Toly, the bully, feels jealous and plays some mean tricks that soon have Bain in trouble with the captain.

Bain learns quickly and is recompensed with more trust and tasks from the commander and the ship's brain, Ganfer.

"Sunsinger Chronicles" is great read for kids under fourteen; it`s clean, well-written and entertaining.
