The First Woman On The Moon is written by Jack Gillen and Vincent Chan. Jason Kramer was the commander of the Orion, Robert Smith was a navy pilot, and Amelia Caan, the third crew member, was the Science Officer on this space mission. The landing zone of the Orion was in the Nubium Basin, on the near side of the moon. Every moment on the moon was a moment to cherish. Amelia busied herself with the scientific experiments on board, and her top priority was the pharmaceutical and biological experiments. Now it was time for them to go back to Earth. However, something was wrong. Once they landed, they were taken to a nearby hospital to be quarantined, but Amelia had had a blackout and was in a coma. The space dust or the moon dust had affected Amelia's behavior, she had to be monitored, and the doctors could not come to a diagnosis. Her recovery was slow, and Amelia realized her mind may have discovered a new dimension and she was eager to explore it.
Amelia's story is encouraging and will inspire women all over the world to venture into new territory just like Amelia, without fear and hesitation. The description of their time on the moon is fascinating and will excite readers as they take the journey along with Amelia. The narration is detailed and descriptive, giving readers vivid images of their experience on the moon. What makes The First Woman On The Moon unique and special is the fact that the protagonist is a woman and also a real person. Jack Gillen and Vincent Chan deftly weave science, the human angle, and the right amount of humor into the story. It is a good book for all those readers who love science fiction, and also for women because Amelia will inspire them even more to shatter the glass ceiling and explore areas where they would not have dreamed of going earlier.
