LAST DAY ON MARS was an entertaining read with young heroes, interesting twists, and adventure with humor and friendship weaved in. A great start to this new series with a lot more to come. I liked these characters from the start. They felt like regular kids and families trying to live as they can and survive their world ending. Literally. The teasing, friendship, and humor between Liam and Phoebe was spot on, as was the worry and stress they and those around them were under. The story starts off by steadily getting the reader acquainted with the characters and with the backstory while also going on a brief adventure with the main group of friends. As a reader, you can feel the level of intensity gradually grow as the story progresses until the action-packed end. Some characters were introduced, but I expect them to become more developed in following books where the villain's plot becomes more apparent. In the end, you're left wondering who can be trusted and what will happen next. In the end, was this what I wished for? This was an enjoyable story. I expect more character and plot development in future books as we learn more about what is going on. Perfect for Middle Grade readers and lovers of SciFi (and my 12-year-old son). Content: Some violence, but clean. Source: Received a complimentary ARC from the publisher through the tour host, which did not require a review nor affect it in any way.
