    I read it in the early 90s and it was set in the near future.

    A group of kids, who’s parents were already in space,  go to space in a home made ship made from a hollowed out meteor and lots of bits from a space ship scrap yard.

    It was aimed at early teens I think, sounds a bit lame but I loved it. Cannot remember what it was called though!

    It might have been part of a series of books.

    No one I’ve asked had managed to come up with anything so let’s see if STW can come up with anything…

    cheers!

    Aquila?

    I didn’t realise there was a book, but I remember watching a TV series.  (I’ll have to read the book now…)

    No, I remember that tv programme but it’s not the same story as the book I’m thinking of.

    thanks though.

    Dove1 you are an absolute star! Thanks, I can rest easy now!

    Hopefully I can buy the series and see how terrible it is before my kids read them…

    Wow, I remember this fondly too!  First book is only 99p on kindle.  Time to relive a small part of my youth!
