"This dark science-fiction story about three teens who participate in a doomed space mission is commendably narrated by Casey Holloway. Varied accents for the three teens--who are from France, Japan, and Norway--and strong pacing showcase Holloway's talent as a narrator. As panic sets in among the astronauts and the teens find their adult companions to be unreliable, Holloway easily delivers the rising tension, and her quiet intensity draws listeners toward the story's chilling conclusion. Harstad's story will leave listeners contemplating the fate of humanity in the vast reaches of space. J.M. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
