Horn Book Review

Six young geniuses from all over the world have been chosen for the first-ever mission to Mars, including American narrator Miranda Regent. Numerous episodes of sabotage--and a significant amount of violence--threaten to derail the mission, and the team ultimately finds itself launched into space prematurely. Surprisingly believable and touching, with multifaceted characters, this novel should engage science-loving readers. (c) Copyright 2018.
