Publisher's Summary

Well known for her best-selling series Kitty Norville, Carrie Vaughn moves to science fiction with Martians Abroad, a novel with great crossover appeal.

Polly Newton has one single-minded dream: to be a starship pilot and travel the galaxy. Her mother, the director of the Mars Colony, derails Polly's plans when she sends Polly and her genius twin brother, Charles, to Galileo Academy on Earth. Homesick and cut off from her plans for her future, Polly cannot seem to fit in to life on Earth. Strange, unexplained, dangerous coincidences centered on their high-profile classmates begin piling up. Charles may be right - there's more going on than would appear, and the stakes are high. With the help of Charles, Polly is determined to find the truth, no matter the cost.

    "Fantastic story!"

    I just finished "Martians Abroad" and my only disappointment is that it is over! I love how Vaughn makes the worlds she writes so real and detailed with little things like reminding you of gravity conversions in a way that is part of the story and not just pandering to the need to shove some science in there that some authors seem to cave to. Vaughn also writes a variety of character types very well. These are real three dimensional people. Narrator Cobb took hold of those well written concepts and pulled them off the page very nicely. Whether you are looking for a book for a young adult reader or for yourself as a fan of sci fi, I highly recommend this book!

    "Move over Robert Heinlein."

    Not since Heinlein's "juveniles" has a YA Sci-Fi story had such punch! Thank you Carrie, can we have another?

    "Enjoyable"

    I feel that this book has a nice mystery feel to it and the ending while not surprising to me, made the story work really well. So check this book out its worth the credit.
