This book started off pretty slow for me. I just couldn't get into it right off the bat, even though it starts off with some pretty serious action. I felt like it took too long to really get to know the characters, and also maybe took too long to feel like there was going to be any hope of them resolving the problem they are up against. Once I got to know the characters, I did love them. And I really enjoyed the world created by the author. ⬇️

rjsthumbelina I read this for the #queerlitreadathon, bc the author is non-binary and the main character is bisexual. I thought the bisexuality rep was pretty well done, without really being any kind of focus for the story. The plot was pretty well done, too. The pacing just felt funny for me, which made it ⭐⭐⭐💫 2d

Happy Pride Month! If you‘re looking to support an LGBTQ author and/or read a book with LGBTQ characters, this book has both and was super funny!

After a stellar first third to the year, I suddenly hit a slump. I was so excited to read my May TBR, and couldn't get into anything, really. Here's hoping June will be better!

You guys: I didn't get it! I started googling what a "Griffin door" might be, and then a meme popped up! Which is when you know you're having a dumb moment... ???

I enjoyed this book. I loved the very diverse cast of characters and the unique take on the future. It was also a fun fast paced adventure.

5 🌟 to this SciFi gem

Sidenote- I've been reading on the Kindle app on my phone a lot because I discovered the scrolling feature (instead of turning pages), it makes me feel like I'm reading super fast! lol

This one took me forever to finish. I think given a different frame of mind I might have enjoyed it more, but I've been dealing with a chronic illness flare up that has left me wallowing with no motivation. I read over 30 books in January and February, and have only finished one in the past 3 weeks. I hate slumps like that. I'm going to try to start something new today that will hopefully pull me out.

GabrielleDubois This happen sometimes... It's so good to come back to a good reading after! 💕 3mo

Sci-Fi/Fantasy books generally aren't my jam, but this YA book actually surprised me.

There's a little bit of Nax Hall in all of us... A dreamer seeking redemption. This book chronicles his journey in doing so among his fellow "Rejects" as they try navigate through space to save the Galaxy from impending doom by three days' time. The characters are fun, relatable, and diverse.

All in all, I'd give this book a 3.5/4?

I know the cover advises to grab a helmet, but if I‘m going into space, then I want a lightsaber (it‘s not clumsy or random). Been wanting to read this one for a while, and it was on a display at my local B&N when I attended an event they had for teachers yesterday on incorporating YA into classes (I wasn‘t invited or anything; I was just hoping to go and learn something useful even though I‘m not a teacher). #youngadult #scifi #MKEngland

This book is straight up fun. It‘s like this—a goofy band of misfits, rejects from a prestigious flight academy, stumble upon a conspiracy, get blamed for lots of bad things & then, when no one believes them about the truth, they have to find a way to make everything right. It‘s a blockbuster movie in a book (with that level of character development). Fun, quick read perfect for a lazy afternoon, the beach/pool or plane trip. Entertaining read.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds good! 4mo

I'll be snatching up everything M.K. England writes the moment it is available from now on because this is SO GOOD. There's SPACE. And queer folks! And folks of all kind of ethnic and religious backgrounds! Without making a big deal out of any of it because who has time for that when a bunch of horrible terrorists want to kill you and everybody you love??

Oh, and SPACE! 🚀 🌌

Littens, I‘m going to make a solemn vow right here in front of you all. This book arrived today and I‘ve decided it‘s my last YA book purchase of the year. I am not allowing myself to buy more. I‘m on a committee this year and will be getting lots of book mail from publishers - I have no need for buying books, and I must focus on my committee work! So please help keep me accountable, friends!

I‘m beginning to really like space adventures... however, I was bothered by the fact that I felt like the author had the need to represent everyone. I understand the pressure some readers put on authors for representation of everyone and as someone who wants to be in author I get that. I also felt like it was a little too goofy in parts that should have been more serious so I wasn‘t as attached to the characters as I wanted to be.

4⭐️ This was a solidly fun book. The dedication says it all: “To Everyone who‘s ever felt like a disaster. Here, have a spaceship! Now fly.” That introduction kicks off a book that is both adventure and redemption. I see it as a jumble or Firefly, with a bit of Star Wars, and Galaxy quest (minus non-humans) mixed in.
