MiNRS by Kevin Sylvester

About the Book
Average GBC reader rating [elpix_average_rating]

Christopher Nichols and his family live on a new planet, Perses, as colonists of Melming Mining’s Great Mission to save the earth. Dozens of families like Christopher’s have relocated, too, like his best friend Elena Rosales.

A communications blackout with Earth hits, and all of Perses is on its own for three months. It’s okay, though, because the colonists have prepared, stockpiling food and resources to survive. But they never prepared for an attack.

Landers, as the attackers are called, obliterate the colony to steal the metal and raw ore. Now in a race against time, Christopher, along with a small group of survivors, are forced into the maze of mining tunnels. The kids run. They hide. But can they survive? In space. Underground. And out of time.

GBC Review by Sofia S.

Hey GGC! This month’s book is MinRs, by Kevin Sylvester. You might have heard of it, as it was featured on the Silver Birch reading list. It takes place in the future, where humans have harnessed a new planet and have sent colonists to settle there. When a group of rebels stage an attack on the planet, most of the minors are forced to survive underground, in the mines. MinRs is a great book and I recommend it for anyone ages 7-14. Happy reading!
