Synopsis via Goodreads

In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.


So, space books have been making the rounds the past couple of years, but I think this one has me the most intrigued! You've been very, very naughty. We're putting you in time out. On Earth. Go be reproductive. But no, really. I love the concept, provided that it doesn't turn into some weird Lord of the Flies retelling. Can't wait to read this one. What about you? Have you heard about The 100?

I featured The 100 a few weeks back. Definitely looking forward to this one. Have you seen the trailer yet for the TV show coming this fall?
