Hola, Larklight by Philip Reeve. Art and Myrtle Mumby live in Larklight, an ancient house that orbits around the moon. They live a rather dull life there, accompanied by their scatter-brained father. However, one morning, word of a guest arrives and throws their lives into chaos. The guest is only the beginning of a terrifying adventure. Aided by cutthroat space pirates they travel to places they never dreamed of going to save themselves and the universe. I liked Larklight. It was one of those kind of silly space books where kids save the day, but it was entertaining. I like Art and Ssillissa, they are both very unique characters. Overall good, but a light read, two and a half stars.
