AIRLOCK

A HAL CLEMENT NOTABLE YOUNG ADULT SCI-FI 2024

AIRLOCK

Brick, a young thief, is terrified of outer space. But they’re forced to escape Earth when a warrant goes out for their arrest.

There’s nothing left for them on the dusty, barren wasteland of Earth anyway. Brick stows away on a cargo ship headed for the moon. They reluctantly allow a local teenage enforcer named Amar to tag along. But the ship ends up containing unusual cargo and the crew members may not be who they appear to be.

 

Suddenly the spaceship is taken over by pirates, who imprison the crew in the airlock. Brick and Amar come up with a plan to rescue the crew. The only problem is that, in order to succeed, Brick must venture out into the deep darkness of space.

Kirkus Reviews

★“Immersive from the get-go, this novel is a quick-paced gem. The story is action-packed, with a plot that is always moving forward but still offers plenty of room for heart-fluttering moments between the protagonists...Engrossing and thrilling—this reluctant reader title should not be missed.”

School Library Journal

“First-person narrator Brick is well fleshed out and the action is consistently brisk...With a relatable and compelling sci-fi/dystopian narrative, this should be an easy pitch for middle or high school reluctant readers.”

CM Canadian Review of Materials

“An ode to friendship, this action-packed book is great for reluctant readers and those who are curious about science fiction. Airlock is a great #OwnVoices addition to collections. Recommended”
