Welcome back to The Reading Corner for All.
Today is the publication day for The Disasters by M.K. England. In her debut book that is out of this world, M.K. England pairs readers with a ragtag, motley crew and throws us spiraling into deep space on a high speed adventure that I found to be such an enjoyable read.
To celebrate The Disaster's book birthday, I made a special creative image inspired by the book.
I am very much looking forward to featuring The Disasters on my Instagram (@TheReadingCornerforAll) later today. Ready for an epic space odyssey? Here's more about the book:
by M.K. England
Release Date: December 18th 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Sci-Fi
Hotshot pilot Nax Hall has a history of making poor life choices. So it’s not exactly a surprise when he’s kicked out of the elite Ellis Station Academy in less than twenty-four hours.
But Nax’s one-way trip back to Earth is cut short when a terrorist group attacks the Academy. Nax and three other washouts escape—barely—but they’re also the sole witnesses to the biggest crime in the history of space colonization. And the perfect scapegoats.
On the run and framed for atrocities they didn’t commit, Nax and his fellow failures execute a dangerous heist to spread the truth about what happened at the Academy.
They may not be “Academy material,” and they may not get along, but they’re the only ones left to step up and fight.
About the Author
M.K. England is an author and YA librarian living who grew up on the Space Coast of Florida and now calls the mountains of Virginia home. When she’s not writing or librarianing, MK can be found drowning in fandom, going to conventions, rolling dice at the gaming table, climbing on things in the woods, or feeding her video game addiction. She loves Star Wars with a desperate, heedless passion. It’s best if you never speak of Sherlock Holmes in her presence. You’ll regret it.
Her debut YA space opera, The Disasters, will be out on 12/18/18 from HarperTeen. For the latest Disasters news, you can subscribe to the Eccentric Orbit monthly newsletter at biy.ly/MKEnews.
