These Broken Stars I'm happy to be participating in the tour for THESE BROKEN STARS by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner.  I don't do promo stops often, but as you'll see in my review later today, I loved THESE BROKEN STARS.  It's a standalone science fiction young adult novel that combines disaster, romance, and mad science.  How could I not love it?

As part of the tour, I have a fun fact to share with you all:

When Lilac and Tarver’s escape pod crash lands, they decide to hike for the main crash site of the Icarus, in the hope rescue craft will head there. This particular decision was inspired by a piece of sailing lore -- you never leave your boat until you have absolutely no choice, as a boat is easier to spot from the air -- even if it’s underwater -- than a tiny liferaft bobbing in the ocean. We thought the same wisdom would apply: rescuers would head for the big crash site, rather than trying to guess which of the tiny pieces of wreckage might hold humans.

You can also enter to win here!  You can win a hardcover or the grand prize of a marked-up galley, necklace, and other swag.  Full schedule here for more chances to win.
