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.

2.0 Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn
Book, it’s not you, it’s me. Actually, to be honest...some of it is you.

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...

4.5 A Dose of Old-Fashioned Fun SF Adventure
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...

3.5 Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn
The full review is at my site. A solid YA-friendly misfit kids beating the system story that just happens to have space ships.

3.0 Martians Abroad: Or a pretty standard boarding school mystery, with some space flavoring
I really love Carrie Vaughn, and sci-fi, so when I heard her first big project post-Kitty was a classic sci-fi I was beyond excited! And there's lots to like about this book. Vaughn's geeky roots are showing, and it is a delight for someone like me who is also a huge space nerd. She clearly devoted ...
