Waiting on Losers in Space

I hear this is supposed to be funny. It's being released next week. I'm intrigued.


Losers in Space
by John Barnes
Viking Juvenile
April 2012

In 2129, hoping to bypass the exams and training that might lead to a comfortable life, Susan, her almost-boyfriend Derlock, and seven fellow students stow away on a ship to Mars, unaware that Derlock is a sociopath with bigger plans.

    1. I know! There's something about a synopsis that leaves you guessing that just makes you want to read it more.

  10. YA in space is pretty much my most favourite underrated and underrepresented genre ever, and I'm super excited for this one. It sounds absolutely hilarious! I haven't heard of it before, so thank you for sharing.

    Following you, btw :).
