Review:

This wasn’t as fun as I thought it’d be from the title and tagline, but it wasn’t too heavy either, and I still enjoyed it.

The characters were easy to like, especially Nax. He was always thinking such nice things about all the other people in his motley crew. Just a big flirt full of genuine admiration for everyone. Even if he couldn’t feel that same kind of admiration for himself.

There was also a lot of action, friendship, a hint of romance, diversity among the main characters (Pakistani, Black, other POC that I don’t think were explicitly stated, panic attacks, trans, other queer identities), and some complicated sibling relationships.

The audiobook narration by James Fouhey was good and suited Nax. A couple of the characters had accents, so that helped differentiate who was talking.

Overall, an enjoyable queer YA space story.

*Rating: 3.5 Stars // Read Date: 2021 // Format: Audiobook*
