Book: The Zero-G Headache by Robert Elmer, Bethany House Publishers, 2000

Zero-G Headache, The (Astrokids)
Genre: Adventure/Science Fiction
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 10-14
Subject: Spiritual gifts
Summary: In the year 2175 living in space is quite common. The Astro kids live on space station CLEO-7. When a rock band with about the strangest lyrics imaginable - "Jelly lasers aimed at chorpoo stars..." comes to the station, most of the kids are going nuts. ZeeBee is worried about something quite different though: her homework assignment to make a drone - that has malfunctioned twice now! She's out of parts and out of time. Can the appearance of the band as well as her violin playing cousin solve her problem as well as entertain?

Notes: The Zero-G Headache was a very appropriate, moral book. However, the "Christian" elements were not all that prominent. There was a mention of God designing the universe and a mention of Him giving different gifts to all His children. A bonus feature, an activity, at the end of the book included looking up a Bible verse as well. However, if you're looking for a book that boldly communicates a message, this won't be it. It's primarily wholesome entertainment. Zero-G Headache is the 2nd book in the Astro Kids series.
