    Okay I absolutely loved how this read like a quietly soft contemporary but in space. It's the perfect collision of sci-fi vs contemporary with a little dystopian dashed in as well. I mean YEAH you probably have to suspend disbelief, but also as someone who knows a pot of squash about space \_(ツ...

    - got my copy from NetGalley in exchange for review blah blah blah books... -I'm not sure what all to make of this book. On the one hand, the story is good and held my interest: three teens born and raised in zero G on a space station come down to Earth and experience things like gravity, getting si...

And to my instant horror discovered it was a book laden with text-speak and with little to no correct capitalisation. An absolute no-...

    “nothing in the universe loves like the moon loves the earth.”if you look up the word obliterated in a dictionary, you will find my full name and an unflattering crying face. because that’s what this book did to me. so heartbroken, yet so happy. written in text-speak, it follows Leo...

    My opinion of Nick Lake was still half-formed when I picked up Satellite. There Will Be Lies, released two years earlier, was not a favorite novel of mine. The writing was lovely and the wisdom valid, but the story logic wasn't easy to follow. Whisper to Me, which came out the following year, showed...
