Publisher's Summary

Desperately searching for a better life...

Despite amazing technological advancements, life in the 2050s hasn’t become any easier. Rustin struggles to find his calling amid poverty, geopolitical tensions, and a world where one must compete for even the most basic jobs against both fellow humans and AI machines. All he knows for sure is that there’s a better life out there, and he’s willing to leave home to find it. 

Only, this means trusting a cryptic group of smugglers and raising more money than he’s ever owned - by any means necessary. 

Arrest and fear of deportation aren’t his only concerns. A guilty conscience feels like an even greater threat. Oddly enough, Rustin’s journey eventually lands him a bizarre job on Mars, the possible future home to all humankind. He never would’ve imagined he’d end up in such a peculiar role - a scarecrow - on another planet, the very same job he’d always thought of as useless growing up on his parents’ farm.  

All he has to do is survive the job for two years. Not an easy task, considering his troubled past and all the challenges a foreign planet decides to throw his way. But if Rustin can finish his term, his employer, Xsociety, has promised to fund his Brain-Link, the enhancement that will take him one step closer to the life he’s always envisioned.  

Who would’ve thought that here, on a foreign planet, doing a job usually taken by a pole and a bundle of straw, Rustin would find himself and something even more valuable: a purpose. 

The Martian Scarecrow is a compelling coming-of-age sci-fi audiobook, full of emotion, strife, and - most important of all - heart. 

...he finds something far more unusual, and with it a purpose.

Inspired by Elon Musk. Enjoyed the life story of Rustin:

It was a very entertaining book all to the last word. Author wrote a clear and exciting story of a young immigrant refuge that ends up in mars.
