Synopsis: Leo has never set foot on Earth. Born and raised with twins Orion and Libra on the Moon 2 Space Station, they have grown up together in the most extraordinary of ways. Now, they are preparing to make their first trip home – their first journey to Earth. But Leo, Orion and Libra cannot possibly imagine the irreversible consequences that their return will set into motion…
An emotionally charged book about finding somewhere to belong, the struggle of calling a place home, and the relationship between friends who become family, this is such a standout book I am in awe.
I don’t think I’ve ever read a book written in such a unique way before, and it added to the overall book so perfectly. It felt as though Leo was telling the story in his way, and the way it was split into separate parts to tell the story was so well done.
The relationship between Leo and the other characters was amazing. I loved the dynamic of Leo, Orion and Libra – they bounced off of each other so well, and Nick wrote them so that we could relate to them without even being in their situation.
The diverse characters within the books were also a brilliant and welcome addition, and made the book that much better and so brilliantly unique. I cried, I laughed and Nick’s way of telling the story completely broke me in the best way.
The ending was absolutely beautiful. I can’t remember the last time I read a book that left me crying but so happy at the same time. It was an emotional rollercoaster that left me on a complete high.
A beautifully written YA version of The Martian, Nick is definitely an author that everyone needs to have on their TBR.
