A fun story with a surprising amount of depth and emotion. Six kids, all living on a futuristic Earth where the corrupt mining company Craven has destroyed all parks and forests and everyone lives in crowded cities, meet each other in the child welfare system. Their paretns all died in the same shuttle crash, and something suspicious is going on. . . Can they stick together and find a way to expose Craven? Plenty of adventure, drama, friendship, and the importance of family combine to form an engaging graphic novel.

A group of seemingly unconnected orphans set out to fight an evil interplanetary corporation. A cinematically-scaled plot filled with twists, turns, and clues galore.

"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." Kids' Books May 2014 newsletter


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.
