Shanghaied To The Moon from the Author: Michael J Daley. A New York Public Library Best Book for the Teen Age: Stewart jumps at the chance to travel into space, but it turns out his mission is more dangerous than he thought Stewart Hale is about to turn thirteen, and all he wants is to become a rocket pilot, just like his mom. But ever since she died in a crash, Stewart’s dad won’t hear of it. He refuses even to bring Stewart to the space museum anymore. Virtual reality videos of his hero, pilot Val Thorsten, aren’t enough. Worst of all, Stewart realizes he’s beginning to forget some of his favorite memories of his mom, and wonders if something in the past is being hidden from him. After bumping into a grizzled old space traveler, Stewart finds his chance to escape to the moon. But in a beat-up craft with a pilot who’s well past his prime, this isn’t quite the adventure that Stewart had in mind.

The Inter Galactic Playground from the Author: Farah Mendlesohn. Science fiction is often considered the genre of ideas and imagination, which would seem to make it ideal for juveniles and young adults; however, the ideas are often dispensed by adults. This book considers the development of science fiction for children and teens between 1950 and 2010, exploring why it differs from science fiction aimed at adults. In a broader sense, this critical examination of 400 texts sheds light on changing attitudes toward children and teenagers, toward science education, and toward the authors' expectations and sociological views of their audience.

Kaltsos chronicles memories from his childhood through his adult years of traveling and work in "The Boy Who Was Shanghaied." After his mother left the family when he was just eighteen months old, he and his older sister were raised by their father. Later, they were the subjects of a custody battle when their father's ability to take care of them adequately was challenged by child services and he lost the court case. The children spent a year in an institution, a foster home, and then returned to their father, ultimately running away at the ages of fourteen (Angelo) and sixteen (his sister) to find a better life. In a series of short stories, he talks about the jobs he held prior and post WW II, then his travels after his army tour. "The Boy Who Was Shanghaied" is the true story of a young man who fought against very tough odds to build a successful life as an educator and researcher.
