Publisher's Summary

Gravity generators and college classes make living on the moon boring. All 18-year-old Madi wants is to finish her training so she can become a shuttle pilot and explore the solar system. But when her parents disappear and the government refuses to help, she's forced to take matters in her own hands. Her search leads her to Earth, long abandoned after an apocalypse. Instead of a barren wasteland, Madi finds a garden paradise and a war that will change everything.

The Scorching is a nonstop sci-fi adventure that contrasts the beauty of friendship and love with the harsh realities of life.

Libbi is a personal friend.

the story is great and well crafted. however the performance leaves something to be desired. Madi is a strong character that finds her footing and is made to sound like a whiney girl by the interpretation of the reader. doesn't do it justice!

The male narrator for a teenage girl is dreadful

It started well even though the male narrator was, in my mind, unsuitable for teenagers especially girls. I wasn’t sure who was talking as it was delivered in such a monotonous way. The story is good but the female lead got captured so many times I got bored. If you can get past the narration and daft story it’s not too bad. If it is the same narrator for the second book I won’t bother.
