Blue Hearts of Mars is a quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award in the Young Adult category. A longer excerpt is available through the ABNA Quarterfinalist page. Reviews from readers are encouraged. Retta Heikkinen knows the unspoken rule of society: love between androids and humans is forbidden. A simple enough edict until Hemingway Koskinen spends an evening charming her with his intense gaze, bewitching smile, and sparkling conversation that hints at so much more than the usual obsessions of high school boys. Rules were meant to be cast aside, especially when love beckons. If only it were as simple as being in love. Trouble is brewing, not just for Hemingway--for all androids. Secrets have been kept, lies propagated, and Retta soon discovers that a frightening future awaits thousands of androids if she doesn't do something to stop it. Worse yet, she will lose the one love she's ever endangered herself for: Hemingway.

This book was kind of like a push me pull you. I would read some and I would start to like it, and then read some and then start to unlike and back and forth. I guess for me, it felt like there was lack of detail. I would have liked to have a bit more depth of how the androids were made, and a littl...
Blue Hearts of Mars is a rather unique story that has a unique mesh of revolution, androids, and moral/social issues. We are introduced to the city New Helsinki which is inside a massive dome on the surface of Mars. There is one major difference between the Martian colonies and Earth (other than be...
I had just come off a read for review that was a DNF. So you can imagine, as a reader, how down I was feeling. I went straight into Blue Hearts of Mars thinking that I had lost my mojo but quickly found myself loving the story and the fabulous writing. This story is unique in so many ways. You m...
