Descripción del libro
MITWA is a character-driven sci-fi I hope will appeal to YA readers who like their sci-fi up in the unforgiving cold of space, where the difference between life and death is measured by the thickness of your ship's hull.
When Omesh is forced to leave his parents behind on Earth to live with his uncle he discovers the name of his new home, Barnacle Town, is not a joke, it really is built from derelict space ships clinging precariously to the outside of a corporate space station. New friends alleviate the homesickness by showing him the world of kung fu in the free fall at the station's core and the sumo school where students learn to compete not just on Earth but also on the moon and Mars where the lower gravity is not a wrestler's friend. But when Omesh and his friends uncover a plot to remove Barnacle Town, people and all, they find themselves lost in the slum’s tangled political landscape of dons power-playing each other. There is no help to be found within the space station either; the corporate officials are all either uncaring or powerless. There is no time to evacuate the people, and the only options seem to be a slow death in the black of space or a fast one crashing down to the moon below. The CEO's son may know another way, if he's willing to betray his own family. Which he just might do for the sake of the girl both he and Omesh love.
