Avaruuden rajalla - Satu Leisko #gift

 STORY : Teenager Visa lives with his engineer father. His mother, also an engineer, is in a coma in the hospital, after an accident on a space station. One afternoon, his father's boss asks him to come work on the same space station where Visa's mother was injured. A new spaceship is there and they want his father to work on it. The work could be very dangerous. 

LANGUAGE :  This is a sci-fi book, set it the future with technology not yet available in our world. Because of this world building, it requires some vocabulary to explain to the reader how things work. The book is less than 100 pages and has black and white full page illustrations throughout. 

Because of this slight learning curve, I would recommend this to B1+ readers. 

WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK : This is a good book for someone new to the sci-fi genre. There is no hard science or formulas in here, just a different time and setting.  It's great that selkokirjat are seeing more genre books, so give this one a try if you are looking for something a bit different.

Thank you to Opike for allowing me to be a beta tester reader of the book before it was published and allowing me to be a part of the publishing process. Thank you for a copy of the published book as a review.
