I give it - 4/5
My review - First of all, what a stunning cover! I am in love with this cover and I really need to get the finished copy soon.
Nick Lake is a fantastic author. I adored this book and I couldn't put it down once I started it. It was gripping from the beginning and, like it says, perfect for fans of The Martian. If you love a good space themed book you will love this. You will get lost in the beautiful writing and this amazing story.
This is a story about kids born in space and how, when they're older they are told they will be heading to earth and for them, it is a strange place to be when all they have ever known is the space station. Leo and his friends have been told they are strong enough to make their journey back home, to a place that will be new to them..Earth. I love the science parts of the story and also the imagination from Nick.
I loved reading about Leo and his friends. How they prepare to get to Earth and how they deal with all the change. Leo is a fantastic character and I really enjoyed reading about his experience.
This book talks about family, love and home. It will bring a tear to your eye to see how they adjust to their new lives and it is just a beautiful story.
