Filled with excitement, danger, and daring, Jonesy Flux and the Gray Legion is a classic space adventure with deliberate retro trappings.
Enter Canary Station, in the Noraza system, where many died and only a few were left alive. Jonesy is one of a pack of children still living there after the station was brutally destroyed by a mysterious ship and an invasive computer virus. Separated from their families during the evacuation, these intrepid kids have bonded and survived, making the most of what remains, repairing what they can, and planning for a rescue. One day, as Jonesy salvages in a forbidden section of the station, an accident unleashes strange powers within her. Unfortunately, this burst of energy immediately attracts a malevolent group of adults eager to grab the source of this flare. They kidnap everyone except for Jonesy, who uses her newfound power to stay hidden during the invasion. Now it’s up to her to figure out how to escape the station, rescue her friends, and reunite with her family, all while learning to harness her mysterious new powers.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
So… I’m a huge, HUGE nerd and science fiction nut. This middle-grade book is such a fast-paced, action packed, edge of your seat, clean read for this age group and even for adults. Such a great concept too. A female heroine, a destroyed space station and children survivors… how can you not get into this? The plot is well-written with the author throwing in a few curve balls to keep things interesting. You won’t want to put this down.
The character is flawed and brave and quirky and you want to be her. You also will find yourself cheering and telling her what to do or watch out. lol I was so engaged in this book that I didn’t realize the time. I finished this book in three sittings. Pray did a fantastic job in giving children an action-packed, full of adventure and mystery, wonderful science elements, aliens, space pirates and more.
Don’t let the size of the book intimidate you, it is well-worth the effort of buying it to read.
