The Disasters Reviews
I read an early version of this book and it is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. YA space opera about a bunch of f*ckups who try to run away from their problems, fail, and end up having a brilliant, life-changing adventure.

Loved loved loved the worldbuilding, the humor, and the way this cast of characters came together for Justice (and money) to save the day. England cleverly negotiated a number of space opera questions (such as: would people who leave Earth for another planet ever be allowed to return, or would we quarantine them off world for fear of contamination?) that I've always wondered about in the Star Trek universe.
