(From the publisher):
Nathan thought it would be the coolest thing in the world to actually travel to another planet. And after making it to the semifinals in the United Nations' special program to send young people to Mars, he couldn't believe his team was screwing up the training program!
At the Houston Space Center, they were supposed to be learning the skills they would need to colonize the Red Planet. Instead, between girl-crazy Sergei, practical Alice, super-cool Genshiru, glamorous Noemi, troubled Karl, and rebellious Lanie, Nathan's group was labeled the trouble-maker team.
They would have to shape up fast. Because still to come was the Survival Trek which would put their new skills to the ultimate test.
There would be no excuses for those who lost.
But those who made it would be stepping into the next rocket blasting off for Mars!
