Quick Summary~

When Fei Fei was younger, her mom told her stories of Chang’e. She dwells on the moon lamenting the loss of her lover, waiting the day they will be reunited. Her mom dies and it hits Fei Fei hard then her dad has a new girlfriend and she has a son? Aw heck no. Fei Fei uses her knowledge of physics and engineering to craft a spaceship to go to the moon. She wasn’t expecting her new brother to come along nor for Chang’e to send her on a quest to find a gift. (Cast and more here).
