He has two good friends, Peter and Misty, who help him man the ship.

#Kidlitexchange Partner: When your multiple-greats grandfather was THE Captain Nemo (remember, son of a deposed Indian Raja) either you become a hashtag richkidofInstagram OR you become a twelve-year-old mad scientist, marine biologist, and swashbuckling submarine badass. Fortunately for this book, Gabriel Nemo chose the latter.

Thanks to Kidlitexchange and Feiwel & Friends for the ARC of Jason Henderson’s YOUNG CAPTAIN NEMO. All opinions are my own.

Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network and the publisher for the review copy of this book - all opinions are my own.

Twelve-year-old Gabriel Nemo is a descendent of the famous Captain Nemo. Gabriel's parents are both researchers who live and work at Nemolabs (located in a secret location on the ocean floor). His sister, Nerissa, has chosen to follow the path more similar to the original Captain Nemo, who terrorized the seas, and is a wanted woman as she takes on ships illegally whaling, among oth

@kidlitexchange #partner Thank you to the #kidlitexchange network, @macmillankidsbooks and author #jasonhenderson for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Gabriel Nemo, a descendant of the original Captain Nemo, is captain of his own submarine, Obscure. Gabe attends a STEM school in Santa Marta, California, while his parents remain at Nemotech headquarters somewhere on the ocean floor. With the help of two classmates, Gabe dodges school activities to attend to missions and sea-b

Full disclosure: I'm a friend of the author and got an ARC. That said, I really loved this book. I'm not the target audience, per se, but the 5th grade version of me would have gone bananas for YCN. And even now as a middle-aged me I can say that it's an honest-to-goodness page-turner with gripping action sequences and a truly fantastic premise, in the best sense of the word. I'm truly looking forward to the next book in the series!

I've been writing for a long time-- comics, games (like Destiny 2), books-- there's always *something.* But lately I've gotten into modern-day YA novels with the Alex Van Helsing series and now middle grade with the new Young Captain Nemo series.
