(Chronicle of the Dark Star #1)

by Emerson, Kevin

It is Earth year 2213 - but, of course, there is no Earth anymore. Not since it was burned to a cinder by the sun, which has mysteriously begun the process of going supernova far sooner than anyone expected. The human race has fled to Mars, but this was only a temporary solution while we have prepared for a second trip: a one-hundred-fifty-year journey to a distant star, our best guess at where we might find a new home.
Liam Saunders-Chang is one of the last humans left on Mars, but he may not be the last living creature. As Liam's scientist parents race against the clock to get on the last starliner departing Mars, Liam and his friend Phoebe make a startling discovery about the planet they're leaving behind. It seems there are alien forces more troublesome than faulty engines trying to stop the humans from getting to this distant star.

Acclaimed author Kevin Emerson's LAST DAY ON MARS is the first book in an ambitious space epic that is as gripping as it is relatable to young adult readers. Liam and Phoebe clash with their parents on the concept of "home" and their identity as "Martians" versus "Earthlings;" their attempts to help the scientists are dismissed due to age. This is a powerful, emotional, non-stop adventure that will absorb readers into Emerson's universe and have them cheering for Liam and his friends through two books more.

First volume in "The Chronicle of the Dark" trilogy.
