Reviews

  • "Malorie Blackman has a nature affinity for space tales and this shines through in her bold new novel . . . The ensuing gripping story has plenty of strong emotions to play with: love, hate, fear, jealousy and more than a dash of betrayal. It's a stylish tale and one ripe for a sequel"

    Telegraph
  • "It all builds up to a terrific climax, the plotted emotions and action coming together in scenes of great tension . . . Chasing the Stars goes boldly where few YA titles have gone before: never before have I come across a book that’s a combination of Star Trek, Ten Things I Hate About You and a murder mystery. What’s not to like?"

    Guardian
  • "Full of nail-biting adventure, interstellar conflict and then passion . . . keeps us guessing to the last.This is confident sci-fi saturated with emotional intensity"

    The Sunday Times - Children's Book of the Week

    Mail on Sunday - Children's Book of the Month
