Aight. This one was just kind of goofy and amateurish and blah. I honestly don't know if I can scrounge up the energy for a real review.

– There are some really good lines and descriptions
– ExploroBot subplot is actually pretty metal, holy shit
– The sheer dedication to the brainless terminology

– ... The brainless terminology
– Similar voices in all three POV characters
– Castor offers nothing as a POV character
– Annoying protagonists
– Annoying antagonists
– Info dumps galore
– Seriously, the characte

I rarely DNF books, but I'm quitting this one around 50%. Super slow plot, paper thin characters, chintzy worldbuilding, themes thrown in your face... None of this worked for me.

Since I didn't get the full scope of the book, I'll refrain from rating.

This was...not good. The world building was super nonsensical, and the writing was stilted and gimmicky, trying to hard to sound like a teen voice but never coming even remotely close. I DNFed this at like 23%. This is the second book of this author's that I have hated, so I'm done.

From what I read of the book, it was diverse and was building up to a lovely f/f relationship, bu tthat wasn't enough for me to keep going. I didn't read enough to definitively say the rep was good, but I'm one starr

I'm always in for sci fi with a moon colony. And this future has not only a moon colony but also some very interesting issues that have popped up on earth...thus necessitating the moon colony that Uma lives on. There's tension because Uma is an earthling on the moon, versus those who have been born there into families who have lived there longer. So...that's a bit of immigrant issues. There's also Uma coming to terms with her attraction to girls and her wish to go to earth. Of course, she has to ...more

is this book going to change anyone's life? probably not. was the writing amazing? no.

(it didn't fully pull off the silly technology names, sometimes it was hard to tell the POVs apart, there was too much infodumping, i saw some of the plot points coming, the ending was a little easy, etc)

but you know what? i had a good time.

there were some cool ideas (the different cultures and societies, the explorobots especially) and some decent -if heavy-handed- messages and social commentary.

The book is cute, and an easy read. It also has an interesting concept. But I found myself really wanting to know more about the beginning: the earthquakes or tsunamis that are mentioned throughout the book are never given more detail. Why humans went to the moon in the first place is never really given the depth it deserves, though that alone might be its own story.
Furthermore, the primary relationship in the story is cute but doesn't feel developed. They just fall in love immediately, and thou

Out of this world!

This book was a great summer read. I really enjoyed the characters and the science behind some of the cool tech in the story!
Uma lives on the moon with her mom. They moved there from earth and are looked down on by the people who have lived on the moon for 1-3 generations now. Uma wants to spend her one month break between school and getting her Life Work Assignment (LWA) on earth, but she ends up having to stowaway to make it happen. While there she meets twins Talitha and Castor, falling head over heels in love with Talitha. But when Talitha finds out that Uma has lied to her, there is trouble in paradise.

I wanted to enjoy this book, truly I did, but the story's beginning makes it sound like one of the Maximum Ride books with the Very Important Environmental Message embedded in it. I could not sympathize with the main character or become invested in her story, which is unfortunate as I think the premise is really interesting.

Everything about this book annoyed me. Set on the moon (apparently all humans live in space now), a teenage boy was dealing with all the issues a kid in high school on Earth would. Bullies, mean girls, trying to fit in, etc. That wouldn't work for me, but add on top of that all their tech ended in -z. "thotz" for "thoughts" -- some sort of telepathic tech. Things like that. DNF.

On the surface this book sounds so ideal: space exploration, science, two girls falling in love... but it really missed the mark for me. The world building felt like too much info dump and not enough at the same time. I never really felt invested in the main characters.

Uma’s family immigrated to the moon colony to provide her with a better life. But fitting in has been difficult. The only thing making life tolerable has been the prospect of a month long visit to earth prior to the assigning of Life Work Assignments. When her trip request is denied, Uma stows away on an earthbound shuttle. On Earth and on the run, Uma meets Earthgirl Talitha. The pair quickly realize that in each other they have
