If you liked "The Martian," give this one a try. An independent space agency is sending the first manned mission to Mars but someone is trying to sabotage the mission.

Tristan and his family are sent to scope out the idea of colonizing Mars, but there is a group of people who think we should stay on Earth to fix it. When the two rockets launch, the trouble begins.

I bought this book as a gift for a teenaged boy, but I read it too, and I loved it! It reminds me a bit of The Martian. I could hardly put it down. If you liked The Martian (and who didn't? It was a terrific book!), give this book a try.

This was actually a really good book!!
I would've given it 5 stars, but (spoilers) some of the plot twist were very perdicable, like Sofie being a neo-luddie, and also some of the Drama in it, like when the ships started to break down and people died.

But I really did like this book, I got sucked into it. I love space themes, so this was an awesome book! It's REALLY GOOD.
I hope there is a book two...
