My rec can be read at https://wowlit.org/blog/2019/12/01/wow-recommends-the-disasters/. Short version, I liked it and wanted to hear more from the other characters. Also, readers must check out the playlist the author created for the book.

Recently my car has been in the shop a thousand times for everything from routine maintenance to a new transmission. This is one of the books I listened to on the 45 min walk to work in the 100 degree heat.

#1 The was a really easy, fast and enjoyable read. I thought it had great pacing and I was not bored even once throughout this book. The characters were great, and I really enjoyed the plot as well… who doesn‘t love teenagers in space? That being said I LOVED how diverse this cast of characters was! We had different races, sexuality, languages and religions, I absolutely loving reading books that have diverse characters.

I really like this version of the future. This is a fun, peppy space read that gets right into the action. The diverse, quirky characters are the best part of the book. Now I want my own ship!

That was fun! Quick and easy read. Everyone was really likable. Loved the diversity - even if it felt a tiny bit forced to have every representation, it was really fun nonetheless and I would definitely be on board to find and destroy Jace in a sequel.
Also geeked out hard on the Firefly references, please return to Serenity in the next book! Pleaseeee!

LibrarianRyan The author says currently there are no plans for a sequel. It was purchased as a one-off. Her next book is out in Oct i think. 4mo

i really wanted to like this book. It was my first fantasy and space novel i‘ve read and i thought it‘d help dip my toes into the genre. Unfortunately I‘m not a big fan of M.K England‘s writing style, it feels a tad juvenile and the characters have no development throughout the story and lack a backstory which confuses their sexuality for the readers.

A rollicking adventure. At first it was hard, despite its action-packed beginning - or perhaps because of it. Diving in mid-action means characterization & relationship-building takes a back seat for a while, so I found myself not caring as much as I wanted. Eventually though, I had a lot of fun w/the Swift Kick's crew. There were some silly bits and foolish bad guys, but overall, it's a likable space romp, & that's right up my alley.

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 ⭐⭐⭐💫 6mo

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! 💕 9mo

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.

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.
