The Moon Platoon

The Moon Platoon by Jeramey Kraatz

Benny is going to the Moon.  One of many twelve-year-olds chosen by the eccentric and rich genius Elijah Wright.

He makes friends, enjoys wonders, helps search -- and learns, with some other kids, that something's been hidden from them.

Unraveling that involves things from the buiding's AI being based on a real woman, unknown elements, one girl making strategic decisions, a holographic spider, Benny's knowledge of what to do in a sand storm, and more.
