|User Summary:||Your science fair radio telescope project attracts the attention of aliens....|
This is a rather disappointing end to the series. It could have been far worse, but it's not terribly interesting. No new ground is covered in terms of plot or gameplay, and the various plot threads are so unrelated to each other that there's no sense of exploration gained from reading the book multiple times.
I had this book as a kid but couldn't remember much about it until coming across it online. Most likely because it's not too memorable. It has a few different paths to get you into outer space and a few of them are slightly interesting, but it feels like a copy of CYOA which was no doubt the intention.
I did find the visit from the alien who says "Peek-a-boo, I see you," because his info told him human children enjoy this game, to be pretty funny.
Above all, this book is boring. There's just nothing new in it you can't also find in any Choose Your Own Adventure book. It's also fairly short and linear as well, so there's just not a whole lot of ground to cover anyway.
