Satellite by Nick Lake - ADVISABLE

Lake, Nick Satellite, 447 pages.  Alfred A. Knopf, 2017 $18.00.  Language: PG (13 swears, 3 ‘f’); Mature Content: PG (lids drinking); Violence: PG.

Leo and his friends Orion and Libra were born not like anyone else. They were born in space on space station Moon 2. His life didn’t really have green, growing things. The only outside contact he has ever had is with his grandpa who lives in Nevada. There has always been one day he and the others have been waiting for: as soon as Leo turns 16 his mother will help return to his “home”  But before he can leave, something catastrophic happens. A worker on the space station has a dangerous job he needs to do and sadly drifts off into space forever.

Satellite was incredible - such an action packed book with sad moments and happy ones too. With moments that wanna make you stop reading, but you keep going because curiosity gets the best of you. What makes this book good as that the words are spelled like what a teenager would text you. The characters have a great back story that doesn’t tell you at the beginning. If you like space and not many action scenes, then this book is for you. I am a person who likes action scenes, but this book may have changed my thoughts about that. If the author reads this, you need to get starting on a sequel. I need to know what Leo will do next. Also you need to send this to any library in the world that is how good this book is. When I tried to go to bed, I couldn’t sleep because I was attached to the book.
