Space pilot Chad takes Jak and Sammi on a secret trip to explore a new planet. Yet fun turns to fear as their helicopter crashes on the planet, surrounded by deadly spear plants. Left on their own, Jak and Sammi are helped by strange, horned creatures. Rescue seems possible - until their spaceship leaves the planet without them.

Recently republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
