It was Oh Kay. Interesting story, but thin. Surprising because it's obvious that there was a lot of effort in it's world building.
Haven't heard much about this one, but it seemed interesting.
Yah! I've liked Abel for a long time now. I already care about Patricia and am exited to read what's next. It comes out next week.
Bought this at a whim at my fav comic book shops in SF. Roller derby girls in Mars? YES PLEASE
I am very lucky in that I have about 5 libraries within 15 minutes of my house but bookstores are another story. The closest bookstore is about 25-30 minutes across town so when we had lunch near a Barnes & Noble I convinced my husband to make a stop. So despite yesterday's plea to myself to stop buying books, everyone in the family picked up something. I, of course, got the most. 😬
(There is a comic book store near work that I need check out.)
Patricia "Trish Trash" Nupondju is a talented young hoverderby player on Mars 200 years in the future. Trish wants desperately to go pro because it seems like the only way to escape a future of poverty and hard labor on her family's moisture farm in Candor Chasma. But even if she could make the team, she's too young to get a contract, and her family is going beyond faster than get escape velocity.
