The world's first school trip to Mars goes terribly wrong. Now the kids are trapped on a strange planet. It looks like it could be Earth, but then why is everyone they meet acting so odd? As they search for the nearest town, events spiral out of control and all their lives are put in danger. Can they survive long enough to figure out what's going on? Crash Land Earth is part of the Toxic series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. The Toxic books offer exciting, shorter stories (just 48pp each) for readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want fast-paced, adventure stories. Crash Land Earth is ideal for reluctant readers aged 9-12 with a reading age of 8-11.
