Space HostagesNicholas Fisk
science fiction, young adult
A crazed and dying Flight Lieutenant, nine village children, a top-secret spacecraft – all of them out of control and adrift in space! Someone must take charge. But who? Brylo has the brains but not the personality. So it is the powerful young yobbo Tony who sets himself up as Captain – and steers the ship and its cargo of children towards new and horrifying dangers.
