The Ark by Laura Liddell Nolen
  

Lovereading view...

There's a meteor headed for Earth, and there is only one way to survive if Char ever wants to redeem herself. She must use all the tricks of the trade to swindle her way into outer space, where she hopes to reunite with her family, regardless of whether they actually ever want to see her again, or not ....

Synopsis

The Ark by Laura Liddell Nolen

It's the final days of earth, and sixteen-year-old Char is right where she belongs: in prison. With her criminal record, she doesn't qualify for a place on an Ark, one of the five massive bioships designed to protect earth's survivors during the meteor strike that looks set to destroy the planet. Only a select few will be saved - like her mom, dad, and brother - all of whom have long since turned their backs on Char.

The first book in the Ark Trilogy.

Reviews

'Futuristic action-packed tale'
YABooksCentral.com

'By the 2nd half of the book, I was sold and didn't want to put it down. Not even for a second ... I fevered with Char and felt I was right along beside her even when she wasn't sure what she should do
Bookworm for Kids

'Definitely a book worth reading. Action packed with fantastic characters, Nolen's debut book is an outstanding one ... An addictive read that will completely suck you in, and have you rooting for Char till the very last page'
The Bibliophile Chronicles
