A teenage boy born in space makes his first trip to Earth in this engrossing sci-fi adventure for fans of The Martian from award-winning author Nick Lake.
 
He’s going to a place he’s never been before: home.
 
Moon 2 is a space station that orbits approximately 250 miles above Earth. It travels 17,500 miles an hour, making one full orbit every ninety minutes. It’s also the only home that fifteen-year-old Leo and two other teens have ever known.
 
Born and raised on Moon 2, Leo and the twins, Orion and Libra, are finally old enough and strong enough to endure the dangerous trip to Earth. They’ve been “parented” by teams of astronauts since birth and have run countless drills to ready themselves for every conceivable difficulty they might face on the flight.
 
But has anything really prepared them for life on terra firma? Because while the planet may be home to billions of people, living there is more treacherous than Leo and his friends could ever have imagined, and their very survival will mean defying impossible odds.

For readers who love “space-fi” books and movies like Artemis, The Martian, Interstellar, Gravity, We All Looked Up.

Pulse-racing paperback: from space walks and failing heat shields, to government conspiracies and a trans-continental escape, there is plenty of action to satisfy teens thirsting for adventure.

Growing Genre: Teens on the prowl for their next sci-fi hit will love this smart, engrossing read.

Award winning author: Nick won a Printz Award for his novel In Darkness, and all of his books receive superlative praise.

Futuristic and realistic: science meets fiction in a satisfying way. Nick’s research into space travel is meticulous, while his depiction of a future marked by dramatic overpopulation and water shortages makes all the “what-ifs” of the story seem frighteningly possible.

Nick Lake is the Michael L. Printz Award winner for In Darkness and has written several other novels for teens. Nick works in publishing in the UK and lives near Oxford with his wife and family. Follow him at @nicklakeauthor.
