The Lovereading4Kids comment

An action-packed narrative that is utterly compelling and characters you will really love. The world as we know it is crumbling and has been for years; this is the story of a group who left earth aboard a space ship, which has become their home. Now 16 years on, two of them, born on the spaceship, have fallen in love.

Synopsis

Skychasers: Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan

16 years ago, Waverly and Kieran were the first children born in space. Now a perfect couple, they are the pride and joy of the whole spaceship. They represent the future. The ship is their entire world. They have never seen a stranger before. Old Earth is crumbling, and the crew is hoping to reach (and colonise) New Earth within fifty years. Along with their allies on the second spaceship - who set off a year before them and whom they have never met. One day, Kieran proposes to Waverly. That same morning, the 'allies' attack - and Kieran and Waverly are separated in the cruellest way possible. Will they ever see each other again?

Reviews

'this was a gripping read and I'd highly recommend it to teens who like books to make them think, and I'll certainly be keeping an eye out for the sequels.' - The Bookbag.co.uk

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
