The Secret Lab by A.B. Carolan

The trouble all started with the cat.  I could have told them that since I've been living with cats for years but they look so sweet, love to be petted and they purr.  It doesn't take long before you feel fond of them and then watch out.  They're great manipulators.  In this case, the cat is really the innocent one...

The author and Booksprout allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

This is a fun fantasy about kids growing up on a space station. This is unusual but earth has been going by the wayside so the parents brought the children with them.  They are smart, still receive schooling and they know almost too much about the space station.  They begin playing with things.  And when the oldest girl meets the cat who sits on her lap and purrs while she's doing her homework, she doesn't know what secrets the cat will bring to life.

The captain maintains strict control on the station.  She has secrets.  Their livelihood and station improvements are maintained by money from corporations and politicians.  This leads to special interests and strange missions the general public doesn't know about.

This is an interesting tale with a talking cat and the young ones being prominent in the storyline.  It's busy, fast paced and entertaining.  If you like science fiction/fantasy, you will enjoy this book.  Give it a try.
