An ancient Hopi myth says people arrived on tiny silver pods that fell from the sky.

But the truth is far more terrifying.

Two-hundred fifty-eight teens are sent from a dying Earth to a terraformed Mars as part of the Emergence Program, mankind’s last hope before solar flares finish off their planet and species. Among the brave pioneers are sixteen-year-old Joey Westen and

I'll just be honest, I went into my reading with pretty low expectations. I mean end-of-the-world stories seem to be a dime a dozen these days.

Then I started reading.

I read the book in two days. (More than two sittings because I have a toddler and a full time job...) I could barely put it down. I was hooked and wanted to know more from page one. Some books start off so slow, you try to give them the benefit of the doubt because you know they have to do some back story and introduce the characte

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

I love Ms. Zakian’s work, that’s no secret, her Ashby Holler series is one of my all time favorite sets of books.

As for Project Emergence, even though it’s coming out after the Ashby series, I have a feeling it’s an earlier work. It isn’t as nuanced as her other books but that fits the story line quite well.

One of Ms. Zakian’s gifts in writing YA is that she writes teens like they really are. It’s not adult thought patterns

I received a copy of Project Emergence from Month9Books in return for an honest review. I would say 3 1/2 stars.
This story is set in the future when solar flares are destroying the earth and causing high radiation levels. A group of 258 teenagers, all twins, are sent on a spaceship to colonize Mars. A small group of adults accompany them. There is danger on the ship as there is a faction of religious extremists who think everyone should stay on Earth. The story focuses on two sets of twins and t

Two and a half stars rather than 3. "Project Emergence" by Jamie Zakian has promise. It's easy to read story with potential for the Young Adult market. It has some plot twists but over all the story is a little clunky and really could do with a good edit. The ending was a little disappointing. It's okay. ...more

Decent. I'll say 3.5 stars. There'll probably be a sequel or two, but it didn't leave you on a huge cliffhanger at least. ...more

[Nota: ho ricevuto questo ebook con il LibraryThing Early Reviewer Program]

L'idea alla base di questo libro è interessante: un'astronave che si dirige verso un terraformato Marte portando quasi trecento adolescenti. Probabilmente un buon editor riuscirebbe a tirarne fuori un bel libro. Ma almeno la versione che ho letto io l'editor non ce l'ha avuto, e la trama è davvero esile. Tenete conto che anche se il background del libro è fantascientifico io lo definirei più per young adults (una volta si
