This very unique book is action-packed with intense fight scenes, but it’s more than a novel about fighting in zero gravity. Fonda Lee delves into the character of Carr Luka and the psychology of fighting, losing, and winning. She also throws in a romance, adds complex friendships with other fighters, and corners Carr into deciding what is truly important in his life. Great sci-fi details/structure make the setting concrete and real without “explaining” it to the reader; it’s just part of the natural flow of the book, and doesn’t stop the action. I’m not really into boxing or fighting, but I didn’t feel too out of my element. I was able to follow the thrust of the action even if I didn't understand all the complex moves and countermoves of the fights.

I didn't think I'd like this book. I guess I just thought it was going to be zeroboxing. BUT it is so much more! There is a lot of worldbuilding that I really enjoyed. Lee thought through a lot of the political and genetic implications of people living on Mars and on space stations. Lee considers the logistics of how zeroboxing works, not only for the boxers but for the fans and the referees. There are political and cultural issues that come up. Genetic engineering of the people who live on Mars and the people back on Earth who protest any type of genetic enhancement (even though the Earthlings that have moved to Mars and become Martians would literally die without it.) Lee considers the ways in which racism would manifest between Earthlings (Terrans) and Martians. Zeroboxing has a history and poverty and its implications are made clear. I just loved how complex this "sports book" was. It was a great book for the Lincoln Award 2018 and I'm so glad I read it.
