MINRS, by Kevin Sylvester


The story: Space miners on Perses, a mineral-rich asteroid, are getting ready to send a hugely valuable shipment back to earth when their colony is attacked by pirates just as their position behind the sun cuts off all communication with earth. A small group of teens with Christopher Nichols at the head faces the daunting challenge of staying alive–finding food, avoiding pirates–for the two months until comm systems come back online. And of course there are more challenges than they initially expect…like, who’s the traitor in their midst? And can they expose him before his treachery wipes them all out?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Whether you’re a boy or a girl, if you like science fiction, you’ll like this one.  But watch out:  it’s a cliff-hanger!
