Things are looking up for Tyler Sato (literally!) as he and his friends scan the night sky for a star named for him by his Tokyo cousins in honor of his eleventh birthday. Ordinary stars tend to stay in one place, but Ty’s seems to be streaking directly toward Earth at an alarming rate. Soon the whole world is talking about TY SATO, the doomsday asteroid, and life is turned upside down for Ty Sato, the boy, who would rather be playing hoops in his best friend’s driveway. Meanwhile, aboard a silver spaceship heading for Earth, M’Frozza, a girl with three eyes and five nose holes, is on a secret mission. M’Frozza is the captain of planet Mrendaria’s Galaxy Games team, and she is desperate to save her world from a dishonorable performance in the biggest sporting event in the universe. What will happen when Ty meets M’Frozza? Get ready for the most important event in human history—it’ll be off the backboard, around the rim, and out of this world!

About the Author
Greg R. Fishbone

Greg R. Fishbone writes galactic fiction for young readers.

As a kid, Greg was a voracious reader, gravitating toward science fiction and fantasy. His early influences include Douglas Adams, Piers Anthony, Madeleine L'Engle, and Ursula LeGuin. He began writing with friends as a hobby, making a game of continuing and finishing each other's stories. Over time, he gained the skill and confidence to write and finish stories of his own.

Greg published his first book, The Penguins of Doom, in 2007 and teamed up with other debut authors of that year to form the celebrated Class of 2k7 group. Greg is active in the children’s book community, serves as Assistant Regional Advisor for the New England region of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and teaches writing classes at a local community college. He and his wife are raising two young readers and a pair of cats in the Boston area.

Greg is the author of the Galaxy Games series, available from Lee & Low Books and Spellbound River Press.
