A New Adult Science Fiction. How could I say no?


Book Summary:
When starvation threatens the human colony on Mars, 17-year-old Jessamyn, a pilot whose been grounded, must prove that she and her autistic brother have the right stuff to raid Earth for food.


Jessamyn Jaarda biggest concern in Chapter one is her brother, Ethan, and getting a piece of ice. She disobeys orders and is disciplined when the food supply is destroyed. Honestly it’s good if you ignore the fact the military would never take a rule breaker into their system as rule breakers get people killed. This isn’t in most novels or movies that rogues are bad officers, so I’ll leave that alone. She gets to go on the mission to save Mars, and her brother, Ethan, is recruited too. Jess is set up  to rescue her brother and her shipmates. She doesn’t trust everyone, and she’s stuck deciding the fates of her family and the planet.

I don’t read YA, though my writers friends love the genre. I said yes because it was science fiction and to check out the genre more. I had issues believing the fate of the world in a girl’s hands with no experience. I’m not a fan and have massive issues of disbelief, but this isn’t my genre. What I do know and enjoy is science fiction. To me the author is imaginative and did her research. I never questioned the science, well okay the rebodying thing was interesting, but I’m in. I wasn’t lost. So for sci fi aspect, it’s readable. Just my opinion though, and I’m not in the demographic who reads YA.  I’f give 4 out of 5 stars. Science Fiction saved the read for me.
