Highly entertaining. It reminds me of Heinlein's juvenile novels. In this story, a group of scientists and teenagers are living in a colony on Mars. The purpose is to prove that such a colony can be self-sustaining. That becomes especially important when the economy on Earth collapses and the entire planet becomes involved in war and political upheavals.
