The Comet's Curse

Dom Testa

The Author of The Comet's Curse, Dom Testa, had a purpose that he wrote the book for and I believe it was his fear of the future. Dom was afraid that a horrible disease or something that was government organized that made 251 teenagers go in a spaceship to a star that is far away to save the human race. If I was one of those teens I would be really pressured to save all of the people in the world.

The story takes place on Earth in the future when the Comet Bahktul passes the atmosphere it leaves deadly dust behind in it's trail. Then after the dust takes effect by killing most all of the adults in the world Dr. Zimmer and Dr. Bauer construct a life boat for the teens to live on until they reach Eos. Most of the book takes place on the Galahad Ship.

When the comet Bhaktul floats through the Earth’s atmosphere, deadly particles are left in its wake. Suddenly, mankind is confronted with a virus that devastates the adult population. Only those under the age of eighteen seem to be immune. Desperate to save humanity, Dr. Zimmer proposes a bold plan: to create a ship that will carry a crew of 251 teenagers to a home in a distant solar system. Two years later, sixteen-year-old Trianna and her council soon realize that a stowaway will do anything to ensure that the Galahad never reaches its destination. The teens must find a way to defeat their enemy. For if their mission fails, it will mean the end of the human race.
