    I just...really like this cover. ...

    [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...

    This is such an incredibly fun space-romp with so much diversity, I fairly felt my soul sing! I crave action adventures where characters are as diverse and hi this book delivers monumentally. It also balances a kickass adventure with vulnerability and awkward self-depreciating sass spr...

    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...

    This book was so much fun! Action-packed, with great characters and an engaging plot. Loved it! ...

    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...

    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 ...

    I'll admit - the cover snagged my attention for this one. The tagline alone - "Space is hard. Grab a helmet" made me think it was going to be an epic, funny space thriller. This is definitely what the book sets out to do, however, it really fails to be exciting or funny in any way. ...

    Space opera! Explosions! Teens racing to save the day! This book is action, action, action. With danger and flirting to boot. I'm a die hard Battlestar Galactica fan and The Disasters was just what I needed. ...

    So happy that I don't own this or spent any money on it. The Disasters was a bit of a disaster to read. For some odd reason, I was expecting something completely different than what I got and I have no idea how I feel about that. In it, you will meet Nax who ends up getting kicked o...

    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'...

    "To everyone who?s ever felt like a disaster. Here, have a spaceship! Now fly." TW: panic attacks, anxiety Unpopular Opinion Time ?? I mean. This book is coming at me, really. I feel personally attacked. This book was tailored specifically for me: outcasts + heist +...

    ? 3.5 Stars ? Quick and fun planet-to-planet romp! The character reps are diverse and part of the lgbt community. (I was thrilled for a bi love triangle... love bi-angle??! Hehehe) They?re not exactly ?rejects? though, moreso prodigies with attitude who know how to get sw...

    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...

    To everyone who?s ever felt like a disaster. Here, have a spaceship! Now fly. That dedication page message was definitely worth mentioning for me, because never has one spoken to my soul like this. (1) I am very much a disaster on the daily. (2) Lord, the things I?d do with a ...

    4.5 stars I read this book almost a month ago, and my immediate reaction was "Ahgdfdhgjhfdsfghfdfs I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!! NEW FAVOURITE!! I LOVE! LET ME FLAIL! I WILL BE OBSESSED WITH THIS BOOK FOREVER!! AHGGFGFHGJGHFG." Meanwhile, the reasonable part of me that knows I reac...

    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 ...

    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'...

    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...

    O.W.L.s Read #8 Completes Divination - A book set in the future Actual Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars This. THIS IS THE SCI-FI BOOK I NEVER KNEW I WANTED! Oh my goodness, I love this failed class and their snarkiness! Everyone told me they think I'd love this and they were so righ...

    To everyone who?s ever felt like a disaster. Here, have a spaceship! Now fly. That dedication page message was definitely worth mentioning for me, because never has one spoken to my soul like this. (1) I am very much a disaster on the daily. (2) Lord, the things I?d do with a ...

    4.5 stars I read this book almost a month ago, and my immediate reaction was "Ahgdfdhgjhfdsfghfdfs I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!! NEW FAVOURITE!! I LOVE! LET ME FLAIL! I WILL BE OBSESSED WITH THIS BOOK FOREVER!! AHGGFGFHGJGHFG." Meanwhile, the reasonable part of me that knows I reac...

    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 ...

    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...

    I'll admit - the cover snagged my attention for this one. The tagline alone - "Space is hard. Grab a helmet" made me think it was going to be an epic, funny space thriller. This is definitely what the book sets out to do, however, it really fails to be exciting or funny in any way. ...

    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...

    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...

    To everyone who?s ever felt like a disaster. Here, have a spaceship! Now fly. That dedication page message was definitely worth mentioning for me, because never has one spoken to my soul like this. (1) I am very much a disaster on the daily. (2) Lord, the things I?d do with a ...

    4.5 stars I read this book almost a month ago, and my immediate reaction was "Ahgdfdhgjhfdsfghfdfs I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!! NEW FAVOURITE!! I LOVE! LET ME FLAIL! I WILL BE OBSESSED WITH THIS BOOK FOREVER!! AHGGFGFHGJGHFG." Meanwhile, the reasonable part of me that knows I reac...

    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 ...

    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...

    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 ...

    I'll admit - the cover snagged my attention for this one. The tagline alone - "Space is hard. Grab a helmet" made me think it was going to be an epic, funny space thriller. This is definitely what the book sets out to do, however, it really fails to be exciting or funny in any way. ...

    So happy that I don't own this or spent any money on it. The Disasters was a bit of a disaster to read. For some odd reason, I was expecting something completely different than what I got and I have no idea how I feel about that. In it, you will meet Nax who ends up getting kicked o...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    Full review: https://bookpeopleteens.wordpress.com... I really enjoyed The Disasters. It?s a fun book, packed with action and an engaging, unique plot. The characters are the strongest element, relatable with full arcs and happy endings. My only wish is that this could've bee...
