Synopsis:  200 years from now, Trish "Trash" Nupindju lives on the newly inhabited Mars, whose settlers live under harsh and ruthless conditions. Trish dreams of only one thing: becoming a hoverderby star. It seems like making the professional derby team is the only way to escape a future of poverty on her parents' farm. But, what happens when a half-dead Martian shows up on her doorstep and changes everything?

About the Author: Winner of both the Harvey and Lulu Awards for Best New Talent in 1997, Jessica Abel is the author of Soundtrack and MirrorWindow, two comic collections culled from her comic book series, Artbabe. Her La Perdida (Pantheon, 2006) won the Harvey Award for Best New Series and was excerpted in 2006’s Best American Comics. She resides in Brooklyn, NY.

My Review:  This graphic novel had an interesting style as well as an intriguing storyline. People have always wondered what it would be like to live in space and this graphic novel shows that, but with aliens and higher tech. But it does have the realistic earth to mars year difference. The main character was said to be a seven year old, which had me confused at first but then I realized they meant she was actually fifth-teen in earth years. Which made more sense.  
I’ve always had a soft spot for graphic novels. But I still have an opinion on them. Although surprisingly this book was well written and illustrated. I was really engaged once they showed other worldly beings in the mix. Aliens have always been interesting to me. Especially how different people draw them. I overall really liked this book and I hope to read the next one of this series.
