The Orpheus Plot

Written by Christopher Swiedler

In this book there is a boy named Lucas. With help from his half sister Tali, he sneaks onto a Navy spaceship and then sneaks back out. There are two sides– The Navy and the Belt. No Belters were ever allowed to be Navy cadets, but Tali only grew up on Mars for a little bit. Lucas gets a recommendation to the Orpheus (a Navy ship) and a few months later the belter’s attacks start. This was a great book. It often made me feel the things Lucas was feeling. The last few chapters are the most exciting!
