In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland . . . before it's too late. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust- and even love- again.

1. Once again, this is one book that 
I really don't regret picking up. There are very mixed reviews when it comes to this book, you either really hate it or really love it but I'm happy to say that I'm part of the latter one. Let's get this review started shall we?

2. The story was written in four points of veiw which seems like a lot but was actually pretty enjoyable. Half the story takes place on earth where three of the points of view are set while the fourth takes place on the ship at the same time. I really liked how the author wrote it so that half the story was told on earth and some of the mystery about what was happening there while the other half of the mystery was taking place on the ship, all combining into one story and conclusion. 

3. I also really enjoyed the characters. 
Their personalities were interesting and I loved learning about their pasts and their biggest secrets. It was really cool to see them grow closer to each other and watch their stories unfold to create a really amazing aspect of the book.

4. I love all the genres this book held. 
With a little action here and there, tons of sci-fi with romance sprinkled throughout the book and an awesome ending, I thought the book was a fun read and had a little something for everyone. If you want a better description, try Star 
Trek meets Wall-E but without all the cuteness and a lot more . . . well . . . death.

1. The only thing I didn't like about the book was that it started out a little slow and didn't really pick up for me until at least four chapters in. Overall, the book was well written and an enjoyable read.

Age Recommendation: 13+
