About the Book

There’s a meteor headed for Earth, and there is only one way to survive.

It’s the final days of earth, and sixteen-year-old Char is right where she belongs: in prison. With her criminal record, she doesn’t qualify for a place on an Ark, one of the five massive bioships designed to protect earth’s survivors during the meteor strike that looks set to destroy the planet. Only a select few will be saved – like her mom, dad, and brother – all of whom have long since turned their backs on Char.

If she ever wants to redeem herself, Char must use all the tricks of the trade to swindle her way into outer space, where she hopes to reunite with her family, regardless of whether they actually ever want to see her again, or not . . .

About the Author

Laura grew up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where she spent an excellent childhood playing make-believe with her two younger brothers. The Ark (2015) is the direct result of those stories and a lifelong devotion to space-themed television. The sequel The Remnant published this year and the third in the trilogy is expected to follow in 2017.

Laura has a degree in French and a license to practice law, but both are frozen in carbonite at present. She lives in Texas with her family.

I really like the synopsis of the book. It draws me in and I'd really love to read this book. the cover matches the book fairly well, we get that idea that Char is constantly looking over her shoulder, trying to sneak her way onto the Arc

The cover is not very exciting, but has great colors. I think it should show more emotion/action based on the exciting synopsis.
