The Countdown Conspiracy
After years of world war there is finally peace and as part of that peace students from around the world are being chosen to represent their countries in the first manned mission to Mars. Miranda is chosen as one of the six and heads down to Antartica for training. But from the very beginning there are issues - someone tries to kill 3 members of the team, including her at the very beginning. Then she continues to receive threatening messages and people start questioning whether she should have been chosen. Then the unthinkable happens - on a routine practice their ship actually starts heading into space. Can the 6 kids team up to save their lives, the ship, the mission, and maybe even the unstable new peace?
This book was a lot of fun - good science, good action, fun characters.
