It was supposed to be a walk in the park—literally. Just a quick trip into Muir Woods to grab a few samples for a science lab, then back home again (for better or worse). But life doesn’t always go as planned, and a three-hour hike in the woods turned into a three-hundred-light-year trip to another galaxy when Max, Noah, Leya, and Chloe get kidnapped by a trio of aliens surveying Earth.
Now, light-years from home—from parents, from friends, from everything they know and love—four Earthlings are about to find themselves in the middle of an intergalactic war of extermination. A war that, if lost, will mean not only the death of their new friends, but the end of humanity.
On the bright side, their lab project is going to blow the teacher’s mind.
Assuming they can survive long enough to get home.
And assuming there’s still a home to get back to.
My Thoughts on Light Years from Home
Light Years from Home was a lot of fun. I was hesitant because I don’t normally reach for books set in space, but since I’ve had so much fun with the Skyward series, I decided to give this one a try.
The characters from Light Years from Home were really well-developed. Each had their own unique personality. I love a good rag tag group of friends, and that’s what I got from this. It was humorous at times, but also heartwarming. It really just gave me everything I look for in a book.
