    I read an early version of this book and it is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. YA space opera about a bunch of f*ckups who try to run away from their problems, fail, and end up having a brilliant, life-changing adventure. It's a clever, delightful space-age coming-of-age story, and you will have ...

    The Disasters is a fast-paced space adventure that manages to be fresh and fun. M. K. England's debut shows a knack for rollicking hijinks while still making time for character development. The book also manages to be effortlessly inclusive. This is a future where everyone is welcome...

    This is a super fun read. Readers get a great look at the anxiety and fear of a young pilot coming into their own. They're surrounded by others in similar states, but with vastly different externalizations of similar fears and needs fears. Plus romance... and some cursing. There ...

    This was really fun! And I say that as someone who's not usually into sci-fi. I'm actually really curious how the Muslim rep is to someone who knows, because it's a surprisingly big aspect of the book. But yeah, basically, I love Quirky Squads on Missions books and this is one of those...

    This book has all the fun things in it: quirky characters, diversity that doesn?t make a big deal out of diversity, great witty banter, adventure galore, great world building, and it feels like Firefly meets Guardians of the Galaxy. Really hard to put down. The main character, Na...

    I had SO MUCH FUN listening to this!! I'm not going to be able to write a real review because I wouldn't even begin to know how to write names of people and places but this book was just a delight from start to finish. I can also highly recommend listening to it (especially if you'...

    [1.5/5 stars] I feel a little mislead by this book. ?Space is hard. Grab a helmet.? <-I don?t know about you, but to me this tagline suggests the Disasters is going to contain a lot of off-planet action scenes. This was very much not the case? In fact, other than the f...

    These people have their shit surprisingly together when faced with imminent doom. How the hell did they end up as washouts? THE DISASTERS was far from a disaster. Good, got it out of my system, and now we can all move on from that joke. "Anyone have any better ideas? Useful diver...

    So this was not holding my attention in the slightest. I was expecting a hilarious romp through space with a band of misfits, and that is what I got - but I didn't enjoy it. All the events in the story were happeing and I could not bring myself to care about the characters, the dan...
