Well-known for her bestselling series Kitty Norville, Carrie Vaughn moves to science fiction with Martians Abroad, a novel with great crossover appeal. Polly Newton has one single-minded dream, to be a starship pilot and travel the galaxy. Her mother, the Director of the Mars Colony, derails Polly's plans when she sends Polly and her genius twin brother, Charles, to Galileo Academy on Earth.
Homesick and cut off from her plans for her future, Polly cannot seem to fit into life on Earth. Strange, unexplained, dangerous coincidences centered on their high-profile classmates begin piling up. Charles may be right―there's more going on than would appear, and the stakes are high. With the help of Charles, Polly is determined to find the truth, no matter the cost.

I'm not 100% sold on the ending, either in terms of how the plot is resolved or where we leave the protagonist, but whatever. If my big...
DNF @ 30%This is not holding my attention. I was excited to read it; the premise sounded awesome. Martians kids go to school on Earth. But, meh, it's the typical board school drama-rama, with the Earth kids and the instructors treating the off-world kids like crap. I thought the main character w...
If you would like to win a copy of this, stop by my main blog and leave a comment. --- I remember while growing up back in the 20th century that SF was fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word, but stick with me -- sure, the stories were serious, there were real stakes (usually), not every ending was hap...
