Told in separate voices, eighteen-year-old Tyler Jones, top graduate of Aurora Academy, and a group of misfits and troublemakers embark on their first mission with Auri, a stowaway from the distant past.
2380. The graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch, from a sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates to an alien warrior with anger management issues. But Ty's biggest problem is Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, who he just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time-- but she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making. -- adapted from jacket

4.5 Stars - I recommend if you enjoy YA and Sci-fi. This one had major Guardians of the Galaxy and The Breakfast Club vibes to me!

On the day that Tyler is meant to choose his squad of elite teammates to share in interstellar missions, he gets caught in a space storm and saves the only living girl on a ship full of thousands of dead people. He consequently gets stuck with a team of misfits, and as they head out on their first mission, it is clear that they were not instructed for the task at hand. Something is very very wrong in the galaxy. As the girl he rescued becomes a part of the squad they must search the galaxy for answers and understand how to defeat the looming threat upon it.

As soon as I started this I knew it would be a LOT of fun! It very much reminded me of The Guardians of the Galaxy, The Breakfast Club, and Stranger Things. I also loved the addition of a heist and a space elf. I most enjoyed that this book starts out action packed, and there are not a lot of moments of downtime. The squad moves from one piece of the puzzle to the next and there isn't time to be bored. I found this book funny, mysterious, sad, relevant to today's issues, and a little bit romantic. I liked that the chapters switched perspective, and the quirky crew that was brought together. Overall I really loved this book and am very excited to see where the series goes.
