Read Satellite Online Free - A teenage boy born in space makes his first trip to Earth.
He’s going to a place he’s never been before: home.
Moon 2 is a space station that orbits approximately 250 miles above Earth. It travels 17,500 miles an hour, making one full orbit every ninety minutes. It’s also the only home that fifteen-year-old Leo and two other teens have ever known.
Born and raised on Moon 2, Leo and the twins, Orion and Libra, are finally old enough and strong enough to endure the dangerous trip to Earth. They’ve been “parented” by teams of astronauts since birth and have run countless drills to ready themselves for every conceivable difficulty they might face on the flight.
But has anything really prepared them for life on terra firma? Because while the planet may be home to billions of people, living there is more treacherous than Leo and his friends could ever have imagined, and their very survival will mean defying impossible odds.

I'm not sure what all to make of this book. On the one hand, the story is good and held my interest: three teens born and raised in zero G on a space station come down to Earth and experience things like gravity, getting...

It took me a REALLY long time to actually get into this book but something kept whispering in my ear to just keep going. I am glad that I did but I need to explain my main reason of why it was so difficult to start.
THE MAIN CHARACTER WAS WRITTEN IN TEXT SPEAK!
For example... "i" for I, "u" for you...

Satellite is the kind of book that makes me sad and happy at the same time. Like Tuck, Everlasting --you know that ultimately everyone made the decisions that were right for their situation, but they're decisions that will have negative repercussions and devolve into loneliness at some point if t...

Leo, along with Orion and Libra, were not born on Earth. They were born in space, on the Moon 2 Space Station. They’ve never had to walk with gravity and they aren’t deemed strong enough to go back to Earth unti...

first book that i’ve read for 2018 and i loved it! this book was beautiful and the story was heart-gripping. I could care less about how the words were spelled or the “text talk” because in the end it is still a story and a good one at that. the people that miss out on this book because of how it...

I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
Let me get the bad out of the way first.
I did not like the way this was written in text speak.
Now the good bits.
The characters were great and the story was a real surprise.
Alter the text speak and this would be brilliant.

"....it’s like seeing the gradual collapse of his corporate shell, of the covering that sustains him. “this is insane,” he says. “Leo, think about this. u’re just going to orbit thru space till u die.”
“yes,” i say. i reach out my hand, ready to cut the vid connection. below me, the earth spins a...
