Jonathan Liu…a curious mash-up: part science fiction, part teenage drama, part thriller. While not all of Barnes's predictions are convincing, he has a pretty good sense of where our media addiction might lead, and he nails the reality of space travel, both the logistics and the emotional impact. And, importantly, Barnes makes the reader care what happens to his characters, even those who are quite annoying at the beginning. For teenagers, Losers in Space may be a welcome introduction to hard science fiction.
