This is such an incredibly fun space-romp with so much diversity, I fairly felt my soul sing! I crave action adventures where characters are as diverse and hi this book delivers monumentally. It also balances a kickass adventure with vulnerability and awkward self-depreciating sass sprinkled throughout. I think they ate a grand total of, ah, two (2) meals tho. I worry for space books, I do. Nobody eats enough. If that's the future, im out.

➸ The cast is the favourite motley crew kind 🤗Nax is bi, poc, with a Muslim family and he's an utter disaster. What if he just flung himself into space before thinking? Yes. This is Nax. Then we have Rion (queer, black, British diplomat's kid) and Case (poc, anxiety disorder, genius) and Zee (trans, medic, Russian, eyeliner on point, and will kick you into the middle of next week) and lastly they pick up Asra (crime boss kid, Muslim, wears hijab, knows everything and everyone). Misfits? Here for it.

My only downfalls were myseeeeelf: I didn't keep up with the plot and it wasn't hysterically humorous as I thought it would be. But I definitely want MORE and I hope it gets a sequel!

let my disaster queer kids in space have a series 🙌🏻
