About the Book:
THE RULES ARE SIMPLE: You must be gifted. You must be younger than twenty-five. You must be willing to accept the dangers that you will face if you win.

Seventeen-year-old Cassandra Gupta’s entire life has been leading up to this—the opportunity to travel to space. But to secure a spot on this classified mission, she must first compete against the best and brightest people on the planet. People who are as determined as she to win a place on a journey to the farthest reaches of the universe. 

Cassie is ready for the toll that the competition will take; the rigorous mental and physical tests designed to push her to the brink of her endurance. But nothing could have prepared her for the bonds she would form with the very people she hopes to beat. Or that with each passing day it would be more and more difficult to ignore the feeling that the true objective of the mission is being kept from her.

As the days until the launch tick down and the stakes rise higher than ever before, only one thing is clear to Cassie: she’ll never back down . . . even if it costs her everything.

About the Author: Heather Kaczynski writes books for teenagers and other people who like books about teenagers. They’re usually about teenagers saving the world, because she really believes they can. Heather never got to go to space camp, so she had to settle for writing Space Camp. After graduating cum laude with a degree in biology, she returned to her first love of books, and she now works in a library near NASA. She lives with her husband, their daughter, and way too many books. She’s not nearly brave enough to go into space, but she did twirl a fire baton in high school. Visit her online at

Notes and Opinions:  All the characters in this one are ALIVE!! Normally we find side characters just kinda there well not in this one! The author did an amazing job bringing all the characters alive and made everyone very human I really enjoyed how none of the characters big or small had a back seat to the story.  This one has a lot of spoilers so I will be slightly secret here!!  This one will knock your socks off! I know it did me.  The ending was twisted and beyond fantastic and outstanding and just everything you could ask for in a book to keep you wanting more.  The story up to that part was great. I couldn't put this one down at all and I can't wait for the next.  This is going to be one fantastic book that everyone should read! Steller characters with an even better story!
