After reading and enjoying Martians Abroad (If you missed my review click here), I inquired of the good people over at Tor if I could have the privilege of running a giveaway for Carrie Vaughn’s new Young Adult science fiction novel.  Thankfully, they said yes.  (I believe all the begging and pleading made a huge impression on them.)  So here it is: THE MARTIANS ABROAD GIVEAWAY!

Author Information: Website 

Length: 288 pages

A great new stand-alone science fiction novel from the author of the Kitty Norville series.

Polly Newton has one single-minded dream, to be a starship pilot and travel the galaxy. Her mother, the director of the Mars Colony, derails Polly’s plans when she sends Polly and her genius twin brother, Charles, to Galileo Academy on Earth—the one planet Polly has no desire to visit. Ever.

Homesick and cut off from her desired future, Polly cannot seem to fit into the constraints of life on Earth, unlike Charles, who deftly maneuvers around people and sees through their behavior to their true motives. Strange, unexplained, dangerous coincidences centered on their high-profile classmates begin piling up. Charles may be right—there’s more going on than would appear, and the stakes are high. With the help of Charles, Polly is determined to find the truth, no matter the cost.
