Publisher Description

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.

so far so good

i didn’t realize that this is a young adult book as ibooks has it classified as Scifi. It’s a pretty good read though if you’re into internet speak. most, if not all, of the sentences are not punctuated with periods or capital letters. lots of c u later and i instead of I etc. so if u like stuff like that then u'll be gud.

Amazing!

Once you get past the texting language, you get enveloped in the book. It gets hard to stop reading and then you become obsessed with it, waiting to see what happens next. You become part of the story, and then when you finish it, you just start rereading it over and over. I love it and I’m working on round 4.
