If you like sci-fi at all, this book is absolutely fabulous. In many ways, it's pure space opera for kids, complete with explosions and interplanetary travel. But it's definitely got parts that touch on deeper subjects, including the nature of war, understanding "others," and what makes people into friends. I also love the many funny parts (the robot Goldfish teacher who will not be deterred from its mission is a particular favorite) and that the kids are so obviously kids, not miniature adults. I loved it.

P.S. There is a good amount of cursing (mild, in the grand scheme, but not stuff I'd want my kids saying), so I'd keep this for 4th or 5th grade and up.
