The Prometheus Project: Trapped (MG)

Trapped (The Prometheus Project #1) by Douglas E. Richards. 2010. (May 2010). Paragon Science Fiction. 192 pages.

Ryan Resnick sat on the floor of the attic and examined the contents of yet another cardboard storage box in the dim attic light--a magnifying glass, a pair of high-powered binoculars, an old phone and various picnic supplies. He shook his head and frowned.

Ryan and his sister, Regan, are two bright children, for the most part. After overhearing their parents talk about their secretive jobs--a conversation that oh so conveniently mentions passwords for the security system--curiosity gets the best of them, and these two decide to sneak into their parents' workplace to find out the truth. At first they are just looking for the real reason why the family had to move across country on such short notice--just six weeks. Especially since their parents have always refused other job opportunities saying that they were happy to stay put. But the truth is bigger than Ryan and Regan can imagine.

What is the Prometheus Project? Well, you'll have to read and see for yourself...

I liked this one. It was a quick read--a fun read. If I'd read this one as a kid, I'm sure I would have become a science fiction fan at a much younger age!
