A rebellion in space pits one boy’s past against his future in this gripping adventure from the critically acclaimed author of In the Red! This out-of-this-world story about fighting for what’s right, chasing your dreams, and believing in yourself is perfect for fans of Kevin Emerson, Yoon Ha Lee, and D. J. MacHale.

Lucas Adebayo drams of being the best pilot in the solar system.

Growing up in the asteroid belt, he's had plenty of practice flying mining rigs like the one he and his dad live on. But the best pilots—the best leaders—are trained in the Navy.

The Navy has never accepted a Belter cadet, but Lucas is confident that he has what it takes to command any ship out there. So when he gets in, he knows it's time to show everyone what Belters are capable of.

But the Navy and Belters have a troubled history, and tensions between the two groups run high. Some people in the Navy think Belters don't belong in their ranks, and there are Belters who think Lucas is betraying their community. Caught between the worlds of his past and his future, Lucas isn't sure where he belongs.

When rebellion explodes, Lucas is trapped in the middle. It's up to him to lead the way to peace.
