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.

    a wider space

    the sun is rising for the 14th time today, firing the Saharan landmass like a match flame in darkness.

    i am sitting in the cupola, watching the earth spin below me, desert rolling past the window of the Moon 2 space station, dunes like waves, sunlight flooding westward.

    i don't move. soon, we're over the coast of Africa. sketches of towns. u don't c them so well in the daytime, which means that they almost extinguish before my eyes, the tracery of light blinking off as the wall of sun advances.

    then sea.

    it's always the sea.

    people down there call their planet the earth, but it's mostly water. i know every fifth grader knows that. it's just, when u're in orbit, it's really obvious. sometimes Grandpa vidlinks me from down there & he asks me where we are & i don't even look out a porthole, i just say over the ocean & usually i'm right.

    Grandpa says it's called the earth because of how farming shaped modern people, or something. he says we learned how to grow things 9,000 years ago & raise animals, & it tied us to the land, like tight. like love. he says when the soil is warm from the sun & u hold it in ur hands, let it run thru ur fingers, u feel a sensation like it's ur mother u're touching.

    i wouldn't know. i was born up here.

    & my mother is not the touching type.

    soon i'll be there tho. that's why i'm in the cupola instead of in class. in a couple of months it's my 16th birthday, & Libra & Orion are already 16, which is the age they always said we would be strong enough. strong enough to go home. they call it home, even tho we've never been there.

    in fact: i just had a medical & they think my weight is ok now. my bone density. so it looks like we will be going back on the next shuttle.

    back: another strange word, for a place we've never been before.

    click: "Leo?"

    it's the intercom system. i push up, float over to the nearest terminal. "yes?"

    "i've got a problem with the auto cargo docking parameters for the day after tomorrow. u want to help?"

    it's Virginia. i've known Virginia all my life. she is 1 of 2 babysitters, we call them. there's vid footage of Virginia encouraging us to crawl, as babies, on the station's treadmill. strapped down, to simulate gravity. then to walk. sometimes we watch the vids in class, to remind us that we have had to learn everything that comes naturally to those on earth. but i can remember anyway, or at least i think i do: i remember the weights, the straps, the monotony of putting 1 foot in front of the other, again & again.

    she's been here 3 months this time, but she rotates in every year for a couple of months. usually people don't visit for much longer than that. even my mother only comes for 1 month a year. they worry about bones. about eyes. about the body going soft in the wrong places. hard in the wrong places.

    Virginia is here for that, in part—to test the limits. a human guinea pig. they take all kinds of data from her body, send it back to Nevada. every 24 hours she has to have an ultrasound of her heart. sometimes she lets me do it. she knows i'm interested in that kind of stuff. by that kind of stuff i mean: everything.

    also we test her eyes every week, & when she gets back to Nevada, she's having a spinal tap for the second time, which she says is going to suck in more ways than 1. she's a scientist & a subject at the same time: long-term effects of 0...

    Leo lives aboard Moon 2, a space station orbiting Earth, with his lifelong friends, twins Libra and Orion. All three teenagers were born in space and raised by astronauts. Now as the three turn 16, doctors believe that they are strong enough to move from their zero gravity existence to Earth, and all are eager to see the home they’ve never been to. The story is told entirely through Leo’s perspective, and it’s clear that he is missing some information—Lake (Whisper to Me) drop hints about a conspiracy and public protests, and Leo’s mother is standoffish and withholding. The mystery keeps the pages turning, but it’s a drawn-out unspooling of information. It doesn’t help that Leo narrates in something like text-speak: u for you, dr.ate for doctorate, and an aversion to capital letters that marks him as different from the very first page but that may test readers’ patience. But for those who embrace it, Lake’s novel raises many difficult moral questions to consider. Ages 12–up. Agent: Caradoc King, United Agents.

    In this free-wheeling sci-fi adventure firmly grounded by its layered characters, Lake (Whisper to Me, 2016, etc.) explores home, family, and the idea of belonging.Raised on a space station since birth, Leo, Libra, and Orion eagerly await their journey to Earth. Each brown-skinned teenager has family ties and personal desires that pull and tether them to the ground (growing plants, hearing music, throwing a ball). But the home they longed for is less than welcoming. The novel's syntax is the first true bit of worldbuilding. The lack of sentence case (only names are capitalized) is enough to mark Leo as "alien" without being obstructive. The subtlety of the exposition overall works well for the near-future setting. Narrator Leo is, rightfully, more captivated by the taste of ice cream and the feel of the breeze against his face than by the cosmetics everyone seems to be wearing and the private Amazon-like corporation that runs the space program. Considering the number of disasters and near misses in the book, it moves at a languid pace, allowing the tension to slowly crescendo and crash again and again. These moments are a pleasant surprise each time, as the book is driven not by the plot but rather by an overwhelming sense of majesty. Every scene is awesome in the most reverent sense of the word. Bursts with wonder and love. (Science fiction. 13-adult)

    Gr 9 Up-Leo has lived his entire life on Moon 2. Born on the space station along with a set of twins, he is anxious to finally visit Earth so he can meet his beloved grandfather in person and see the ranch where Grandpa lives. Leo is a bit of a space prodigy-his mom is a renowned astronaut and scientist, and Grandpa was among the elite crew that last visited the Moon. Leo, excited to bond with his mother, is disappointed with her calculated and distant professionalism. When Leo finally makes it to the ranch, Grandpa is everything the teen had hoped. Leo has a new dog waiting for him and his grandfather is eager for him to learn ranching skills. Meanwhile, the protagonist is frustrated that he can't contact the twins and then finds a flyer indicating that outsiders are willing to help "space boy." Leo isn't sure what help he might need, but after an accident, the doctor notices his bone density is surprisingly low. When Grandpa discharges him from the hospital prematurely, the boy wonders what is really going on, and hints of conspiracy start to unfold. This novel begins slowly and is overly technical, but it adequately creates suspense and will evoke emotions regarding Earth's best experiences. The writing style is difficult, relying on under-capitalized text-speak throughout. VERDICT A decent addition to sci-fi collections that combines elements of Andy Weir's The Martian with hints of Margaret Peterson Haddix's Turnabout.-Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL
