Mars One

Reviewed by:

Multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry pens an exciting science fiction adventure based on the actual Mars One Project. Told from the perspective of the sixteen-year-old brilliant mechanic Tristan, who has been chosen with his parents and a small group of scientists to colonize Mars, the story follows him through different stages preparing for the mission, from physical to emotional training, to his reluctant stardom on reality television, and his final interactions with his girlfriend Izzy. Interlacing the believable science fiction with reality, interpersonal drama and a life threatening crises on their one-way trip to the Red Planet, this thrilling novel offers keen insights into interstellar technology and space exploration, adding a playlist at its conclusion for extra interest to a YA reader who may look for a sequel or film in the future.
