From official release/information:
Rat isn't your ordinary cheese eating squeaker. She's a lavender colored, genetically engineered, super smart rodent, with plans as big as the planet Earth. The problem is she's currently stuck on a space station with no way off that doesn't require dealing with humans. Although her teenage human associate, Jeff, has shown that he can be trusted somewhat, he's still of the same species that made her into a lab specimen, a species that has proven itself to be her enemy again and again. It's now time for Jeff and his parents to leave the station, and Rat and Jeff are scheming to make sure she'll be going with them … although Jeff doesn't have to know all the particulars of her plan. All she has to do is clean up all traces of herself from the station's computers, eliminate all biological traces of herself from the station itself, and most difficult of all, keep from being found by her creator, Dr. Vivexian, who's come to the station personally to investigate what's become of his wayward science project.
Book Description: In this adventure of genetically engineered rats, evil scientists, and some scientists who may just save the day, young readers will be thrilled to welcome back Jeff and Rat in this charming sequel to "Space Station Rat".
