The Final Six Reviews
So the description on this book made me very hesitant to pick it up and read. However, I am soooooo happy that I did. While I fully admit there were chapters of this book that I had to walk away from because they were so slow, overall very good! Within the first couple chapters I started to feel the excitement of going between Leo and Naomi and really seeing the two different sides of this Europa Project. Also, the project in general made me really contemplate and think about our world now and h ...more

I couldn't finish this one. I was bored and started skim reading it. If I can't give my full attention to a book, I might as well not read it. The characters were boring, the insta-love was running at me at full speed and I had a lot of questions.

*I received an eArc of this book from the Publishers through Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review*
Three and a half stars: A thrilling, dystopian book featuring teenagers competing to colonize Jupiter’s moon.

The only hope now rests on the shoulders of an elite group of twenty four teenagers, picked from the entire world’s population for their gifts. They will compete for six coveted spots to head into space. The destination is Europa, one of ...more
I flew, I mean legit FLEW, through this. One day, 24 hours, that’s how long it took and not because it was a small book. I still cannot believe how fast I read it. It was BRILLIANT!
I dig space shit. Besides fantasy stuff like kingdoms and witches and dragons, sci-fi is my go-to genre. Especially the ones that are set in other planets or about trying to go to other planets. The Final Six is about 24 teens are chosen in a draft to train for a space mission to colonize one of Jupiter’s moons Europa ...more
Duuuuuude. I need book 2. NOW! ... more intelligent thoughts coming soon (ha!).
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Climate change has wrecked Earth, so twenty-four teens from around the globe are chosen to compete for a slot in the shuttle that will go to Europa with hopes of establishing a human settlement there. Told from the perspectives of Leo, an Italian swimmer recently orphaned when Italy went underwater, and Naomi, an Iranian-American science nerd from California who is suspicious of this entire mission.
What I Liked: The premise is kind of interesting. I was intrigued to see what would happen - how ...more
THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD!
It was fast-paced, full of suspense (which is SO RARE in a contemporary setting!), and full of fascinating science conspiracies that I just can't get out of my head.
Something I really loved but that also terrified me about this book was how plausible the world Naomi and Leo lived in seemed? This is the first book I've read that has explored the possibility of the natural disasters that could come as a result of climate change, and I was both awed and also just horrified a ...more
tw: this book opens on a suicide attempt
(this is mostly a note to myself so I don't forget by the time I actually get around to buying/reading it)
