Jeromy has lost a lot in the span of a single night. He’s lost track of his family, lost track of his friends, and now he’s lost the entirety of the neighborhood they live in.  The culprit? An army of evil Moon-men, spreading chaos through the streets of Bay View with an odd alien affliction. Their aim? To find and steal the Orb of the Zodiac.

So long as he can keep from getting captured by them, Jeromy won’t join the hordes of zombie-like citizens these beasts have already attacked. Unfortunately for him, this could prove easier said than done. With literal thousands of invaders in the streets all around him, he’ll need his wits, his resourcefulness, and his ability to split into twins if he’s to have even the slightest chance at staying human!

But what does it matter if a bunch of aliens take a small, strange Orb back up to space with them? Why should Jeromy risk his life - or, at least, his human eyes - to prevent them? Well, as the nightmare stretches into weeks, Jeromy will come to face the stakes of the situation. These mud-made Moon-men don’t only pose a threat to him, or the Zodiac Dozen, or even all of Wisconsin. No - if Jeromy can’t overcome them, it could indeed mean the loss of his entire planet.





Oliver Bestul lives in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has been writing there since he was in his teens.


With a picture book, a few plays, some poetry, and a feature-length film under his belt, he decided to try his hand at entertaining a new kind of audience: middle-schoolers! Inspired by the chapter books and comics of his youth, he sat down and started The Zodiac Dozen, a 12-book superhero series for kids!


In writing the series, he likes to say he gives his young readers a lot of credit, challenging them to explore new vocabulary, genres, and life outlooks. Like the twelve main characters of his books, he’s excited to grow from the adventure alongside his audience!
