Satellite by Nick Lake

Satellite is the new book by Nick Lake, the book follow Leo a 15-year-old boy born on Moon 2 a Satellite orbiting space.

Moon 2 is all that Leo and twins Libra and Orion have every known, born in space to astronauts mothers. Leo has been waiting till his sixteen birthday when he is strong enough to go back home to earth. After all his dreaming of earth, will Leo have the ability to cope with all the new experiences once he is one earth. Leo thought living in space was dangerous but nothing is a dangerous as a planet full of billion of people with their own agenda. Now Leo, Libra and Orion will have to survive and defy all odds.

Nick Lake has beautifully written this story, but my favourite parts are Leo reactions to his new experiences on earth. Things that we take for granted, I wish I could remember my first experiences of snow and sunsets.

This book got me on a more of an emotional level, than I thought when I read the book descriptions. The book is an emotional adventure, that take an interesting take on the Young Adult Space fiction.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5.


Thank to Netgalley for allowing me to read and advanced copy.

Thanks for reading
