Staff Reviews

The Darkness Outside Us is a dark science fiction novel with a captivating romantic subplot between two male main characters. Set in a spaceship on its way to check a distress signal, two rival men must learn to coexist–while simultaneously unraveling the bloodcurdling mysteries that they begin to unearth. Easily my favorite book of the year, Schrefer delivers a terrifying story that’s worth picking up for any young adult who wants a hint of romance in their science fiction.

— Samwise McGinn


They Both Die at the End meets The Loneliest Girl in the Universe in this mind-bending sci-fi mystery and tender love story about two boys aboard a spaceship sent on a rescue mission, from two-time National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer.

Two boys, alone in space. Sworn enemies sent on the same rescue mission.

Ambrose wakes up on the Coordinated Endeavor with no memory of a launch. There's more that doesn't add up: evidence indicates strangers have been on board, the ship's operating system is voiced by his mother, and his handsome, brooding shipmate has barricaded himself away. But nothing will stop Ambrose from making his mission succeed--not when he's rescuing his own sister.

In order to survive the ship's secrets, Ambrose and Kodiak will need to work together and learn to trust each other . . . especially once they discover what they are truly up against. Love might be the only way to survive.
