About the Author: Julie Anne Grasso
With a background in paediatric nursing, Julie Anne Grasso spent many years literally wrapping children in cotton wool. Every day she witnessed great courage and resilience from the tiny people she cared for, which inspired her to write stories to encourage and entertain them.
She lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband Danny and their little girl, Giselle.
What I love about the Caramel Cardamon Trilogy is the heroine is small and has a handicap yet solves issues well beyond her years which still being a nice person. It is wonderful that such a person is the center of the story. This story helps students empathize with her while simultaneously being impressed with her cosmic talents and abilities, and knowing she won’t miss a beat and will solve any problems that come her way. She has a talented group of interstellar friends who each have their own talents and demonstrate caring for one another. This is a great read and I’m sad the trilogy is over! I’m looking forward to more books by Julie Anne Grasso.
This particular book is about a very wicked plan which takes 50 young space cadets away from home by luring them on a spaceship. Representing their own home areas, they make awesome presentations from a podium before going to a cosmic amusement park. However, it is a trap and could have turned out very badly if not for Caramel’s dream walking and other abilities as well as clever last minute thinking.
