Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick has been described as The Breakfast Club meets Guardians of the Galaxy: The Disasters by M.K. England.
We know, HarperTeen had us at The Breakfast Club meets Guardians of the Galaxy too.
The book follows a group of teen underdogs from a space academy who have been framed for the “biggest crime in the history of space colonization.” Ummm, can this be adapted yesterday? Thanks.
You can snag your very own copy of The Disasters when it hits shelves on December 18, 2018.
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 and framed for atrocities they didn’t commit, Nax and his fellow failures execute a dangerous heist to spread the truth about what happened at the Academy.
They may not be “Academy material,” and they may not 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 a page-turning thrill ride that anyone—not just space nerds—can enjoy.
