"Set in the same world as Waypoint Kangaroo, Curtis C. Chen's Kangaroo Too is bursting with adrenaline and intrigue in this unique outer space adventure. On the way home from his latest mission, secret agent Kangaroo's spacecraft is wrecked by a rogue mining robot. The agency tracks the bot back to the Moon, where a retired asteroid miner--code named "Clementine" --might have information about who's behind the sabotage. Clementine will only deal with Jessica Chu, Kangaroo's personal physician and a former military doctor once deployed in the asteroid belt. Kangaroo accompanies Jessica as a courier, smuggling Clementine's payment of solid gold in the pocket universe that only he can use. What should be a simple infiltration is hindered by the nearly one million tourists celebrating the anniversary of the first Moon landing. And before Kangaroo and Jessica can make contact, Lunar authorities arrest Jessica for the murder of a local worker. Jessica won't explain why she met the victim in secret or erased security footage that could exonerate her. To make things worse, a sudden terror attack puts the whole Moon under lockdown. Now Kangaroo alone has to get Clementine to talk, clear Jessica's name, and stop a crooked scheme which threatens to ruin approximately one million vacations. But old secrets are buried on the Moon, and digging up the past will make Kangaroo's future very complicated."-- Provided by publisher.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Though this is the second novel in the series, it can be read on its own. Think Mark from the Martian trying to be James Bond of the gadgety films. Only this spy has a personal other universe to stash everything in. Funny, fun, and full of action.

First off, I've got to say that I didn't read book one. Luckily, this one works perfectly fine as a standalone story. I definitely want to get back and read book one when I've got more free time, though!

First off, I've got to say that I didn't read book one. Luckily, this one works perfectly fine as a standalone story. I definitely want to get back and read book one when I've got more free time, though!

Now, this book was just so much fun. Kangaroo is pretty much like James Bond from the more gadgety movies, though he's much more dorky than suave -- and that's great. He's relatable and entertaining and manages to get the job done -- cleverly, even though he seems like the kind of character that would have to rely on coincidence and luck. It makes for such a better story that his goofiness doesn't interfere with his training.

I'd say I saw the big plot twist coming a long way off, but that's fine. It didn't make the novel any less enjoyable. And the publisher wouldn't have added those non-story clues in if they weren't trying to get us there.

The novel also gives us a lot to look forward to. I'll eagerly be awaiting the next book in the series
