Hal Junior: The Secret Signal - Simon Haynes I received this book from a Goodreads Firstreads giveaway.Hal Junior lives on a space station with his parents. His best friend is nicknamed Stinky and his teacher is a robot. Hal is a bit of a trouble maker with arriving late to class and hardly remembering to do his homework, so at first he has some trouble trying to convince people of the threat to the space station. The Tiger supply ship is holding Hal’s mother and friends hostage in exchange for some amazing scientific research. It’s up to Hal to save them.While this book is written for ages 8-12, the humour can also be well appreciated by adults too. The story flows incredibly well and each concise chapter leaves you wanted to read on. I’m really glad I won this n the Goodreads giveaway, as I probably wouldn’t have had a chance to read it otherwise. This would definitely be a good Santa stocking filler this Christmas!EDIT: I talked about this book in a vlog... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcBo_8j7Jbk
