Here's the official synopsis to give you a glimpse into the story:
On their way to start a new life, Tula and her family travel on the Prairie Rose, a colony ship headed to a planet in the outer reaches of the galaxy. All is going well until the ship makes a stop at a remote space station, the Yertina Feray, and the colonist's leader, Brother Blue, beats Tula within an inch of her life. An alien, Heckleck, saves her and teaches her the ways of life on the space station.
When three humans crash land onto the station, Tula's desire for escape becomes irresistible, and her desire for companionship becomes unavoidable. But just as Tula begins to concoct a plan to get off the space station and kill Brother Blue, everything goes awry, and suddenly romance is the farthest thing from her mind.
Castellucci will be signing ARCs of Tin Star at Comic-Con, on July 18th at 3pm in the MacKids booth, #1220; so basically if any of my friends happen to snag an extra copy of it for me, I will love you forever.
Unfortunately, Tin Star isn't available until February 25, 2014. But in the mean time, you should pick up Across the Universe by Beth Revis or Icons by Maragaret Stohl!
