Eudora Jenkins loves adventure. She lives on an AstroFleet named Athena with her parents and other people from various species throughout the galaxy. Eudora has so many ideas for the ship, but no one lets her implement them! Eudora's dream is to become an officer on the Athena, but she doesn't want to wait that long! She wants to test her idea that will make the AstroFleet go the fastest it's ever gone (and even break a record) right away. So Eudora makes a plan to trick the adults and test out her idea.

In the book Eudora Space Kid: The Great Engine Room Takeover, a third-grade girl named Eudora Jenkins lives on a spaceship named Athena. Athena is a part of a group called Astrofleet, which is made up of many different spaceships. All her life, Eudora has dreamed of becoming an Astrofleet engineer. These engineers make sure everything is running correctly and make improvements to the spaceship. But, because she's too young, no one pays any attention to her. So Eudora makes a plan. She is going to do something no one has ever done before, something that nobody can ignore.
