"After her parents are killed in a space shuttle explosion, 12-year-old Phoebe is sent unwillingly to a gloomy orphanage. Once there, she meets five other kids whose parents died in the same suspicious shuttle accident, and together they uncover a conspiracy that could change their fate -- not to mention the fate of humanity. Though the energetic illustrations give it a cheerful look, the high-stakes drama in this graphic novel will be best enjoyed by older readers. Like Star Wars, The Silver Six is a sweeping adventure about rebellion, family secrets, and working toward a better future."

What looks on the outside to simply be yet another tame adventure tale for the kiddos turns quickly into a story so packed with excitement that in any other author’s hand this could easily have been split into a trilogy (at the very least). With a large diverse cast, a relatable heroine, and a good old-fashioned evil corporation, Lieberman and Rawlings dare to dream big and it pays off.

Phoebe Hemingway’s been doing okay. Sure, her parents died in a mysterious crash about a year ago and ever since she’s been faking it with her robot Oliver, living on their own. But when child welfare services track her down and send her to the ultimate nasty futuristic orphanage she discovers she may be in grave dangerd. Fortunately she meets up with five other kids that share some shocking similarities to Phoebe. Like the fact that their parents all died in the same crash. Or that they all willed to their children the same moon registration forms. Now the team is on an epic quest to escape the orphanage, travel off the planet, dodge the bad guys, and find out the true conspiracy behind their parents’ deaths.
