The Breakfast Club meets Guardians of the Galaxy in this YA sci-fi adventure by debut author M. K. England. Hotshot pilot Nax Hall has a history of making poor life choices. So it's not exactly a surprise when he's kicked out of the elite Ellis Station Academy in less than twenty-four hours. But Nax's one-way trip back to Earth is cut short when a terrorist group attacks the Academy. Nax and three other washouts escape-barely-but they're also the sole witnesses to the biggest crime in the history of space colonization. And the perfect scapegoats. On the run, Nax and his fellow failures plan to pull off a dangerous heist to spread the truth. Because they may not be "Academy material," and they may not even get along, but they're the only ones left to step up and fight. Full of high-stakes action, subversive humor, and underdogs becoming heroes, this YA sci-fi adventure is perfect for fans of Illuminae, Heart of Iron, or the cult classic TV show Firefly and is also a riviting thrill ride that anyone-not just space nerds-can enjoy.

Professional reviews

"Advertised as a space story starring a motley crew, this audiobook is more of a land-bound conspiracy thriller than true science fiction. The story is filled with shrewd characters, deadly intrigue, and enough close calls to keep listeners on the edge of their seats. Narrator James Fouhey portrays Nax Hall with just a touch of snark, playing up the character's jaded attitude perfectly. There is nothing casual about Fouhey's overall performance, and his edgy delivery makes the multiple scenes of conflict that much more intense. Although the story differs from expectations, it's still an action-packed fun listen for fans of YA science fiction. N.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
