The 100 By Kass Morgan***

In The 100 Clarke has been chosen to go to Earth. It's been almost three centuries since any human has returned to the war-torn Earth. The one hundred fugitives are sent to Earth. When they get there, they immediately break out in fighting over supplies. Wells, the Chancellor's son, tries to take control and settle everyone down, but a few people rebel and get mad. On the "mother ship," Glass is the only person to have escaped the shuttle before it took off for Earth. She visits the boy she loves almost everyday on the "mother ship." In this riveting tale of death, life, and love--the kids must learn how to survive on Earth and in the "mother ship."

This book has a good sci-fi feel to it. It is an okay book, but it ended in a cliffhanger, which I love. I hated the spaceship part of the book. It feels like too many people are using space in their stories lately. This book is definitely appropriate for older kids, but read it only if you want to experience another space story.
