Stranded in space: no fuel, no way home… and no one coming to help.
From the pen of Hugo Finalist Gideon Marcus comes the found-family, YA Space Adventure you’ve been waiting for:
Nineteen-year-old Kitra Yilmaz dreams of traveling the galaxy like her Ambassador mother. But soaring in her glider is the closest she can get to touching the stars — until she stakes her inheritance on a salvage Navy spaceship.
On its shakedown cruise, Kitra’s ship plunges into hyperspace, stranding Kitra and her crew light years away. Tensions rise between Kitra and her shipmates: the handsome programmer, Fareedh; Marta, biologist and Kitra’s ex-girlfriend; Peter, the panicking engineer; and the oddball alien navigator, Pinky.
Now, running low on air and food, it’ll take all of them working together to get back home.
With illustrations by Lorelei Esther.
"Kitra is successful in providing a compelling action/adventure tale while maintaining an emotional drive that proves to be the heart of the story. On this journey, the reader is bound to fall in love with the characters and the relationships that develop along the way. Kitra is a worthwhile read for devoted YA fans and adult science fiction readers looking for some light fun, and it should be added to everyone’s reading list for the new year."
