Space Cadets by Laurence Moroney

Her father died in the last conflict in Korea.  He got too much radiation and didn't survive.  But he wrote her a letter.  In that letter, he told her of his dream to visit the stars and find new worlds.  She's determined to do that for him.

The author and Goddess Fish Blog Tours gave me the opportunity to read this book (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

This is a new series that is written for young adults.  It's an adventure, science fiction/fantasy type story that sounds almost believable in this day and age.  Aisha is an African American, female and the first of her color and her sex to go to the Space Academy.  There are other girls there but she and her roommate are both different.  Her roommate is Asian and very intelligent.  They're not well liked by the upper classmates.

A lot happens in this first book.  Aisha's new boyfriend almost gets killed by another classmate.  They get to explore a new world.  And the world they left in is in danger.

It will keep you reading and wondering how it will turn out.  It will take more than this book to tell the whole story.

There is also an opportunity to win:
