    1. THE EXO PROJECT is, at first glance, a typical sci-fi about alien planets and colonization. But once you begin turning the pages, it quickly becomes apparent that there's more here than sci-fi tropes -- rather, it tackles philosophy, international relations, complex social dynamics, and brings characters to the table who are filled with heart *and* flaws.The story is fast-paced, strongly character-driven, and I've been surprised (in the best way) to discover that elements of this story will pop [...]


    2. Fantastic. I don't read a lot of science fiction, but THE EXO PROJECT grabbed me from page one. Told from multiple POVs, this is a smart, engaging story. (And one that I would have read a lot faster if my 13-year-old son hadn't kept sneaking it into his backpack. He finished before I did.)




    3. On the surface, THE EXO PROJECT is a gripping, page-turner, sci-fi YA novel that I read in two nights. On deeper reflection, THE EXO PROJECT grapples with the philosophical question: Imagine you are trapped in a burning building with your sibling and five strangers. You know that you can get out safely, but you can only rescue one group. Who would you save? Now imagine that burning building is the Earth. You're probably safe, but do you choose to rescue humanity? Or an innocent and peaceful alie [...]


    4. I loved this book. It is a fast moving, classic sci-fi story where desperate people are sent out to find a a new planet for the dying human population. What Matthew finds is a very complex and unique planet with a matriarchal society. The author absolutely nails the voices of both characters. The world building sucks you in, both the solar radiation ravaged Earth and the beautiful Gle’ah (where everything isn’t what it seems). This is a compelling, one-sitting read.


    5. The Exo Project is a story about the future earth dying. Man has finally destroyed it to the point where it can't sustain life anymore. Corporations have the money so they build quite a few spaceships to send scouts in all directions looking for a new world that humanity can move to. The volunteers are put in deep freeze for the time that it takes to travel between the stars. So far, the only spaceship that finds a habitable world contains Dunne, Sam & Matthew. Now comes the big choices. Thi [...]


    6. This is a wonderful sci-fi story with well-developed world building and an adorable romance to boot! It's a coming-of-age story for Kiva, the head of a young matriarchal society on a distant planet, and Matthew, a boy cryogenically frozen and sent 100-light-years away to scout out potential planets for a dying Earth to colonize. The twist at the end is what this book was really about for me. It beautifully depicted that our present is a direct result of our past, and with just a little bit of hu [...]


    7. This book ended up being really good, in the last 50 pages. The first 390 or so, was just a lagging story that was predictable and boring. Of course I still needed to finish the book because that's just how I work with book. But in the end, it was a good end and it made me happy to finish. I just wish the beginning was more interesting or shorten the beginning and so you get to the good stuff faster. I think the book would have been best without the whole Kyne rebellion. I thought it was a waste [...]


    8. The Expo project: 17 year old Matthew has to make one of the most difficult decisions of his short life. In doing so, he either stays to care for his sister or leaves her, to save her life. On another planet, young Kiva, a female, has her own life altering experiences. I enjoyed the concept, a combination of dystopian earth, romance, sci-fi and alien cultural experiences. Any young "true" sci-fi reader will enjoy this novel.


    9. Interesting young adult novel - lots of pieces of genres; dystopian, new worlds, philosophy and technology, all gathered within a tale of young love. I think I would have been happier with a little more science in those underlying pieces (trying not to offer spoilers), but maybe that's just the case with a YA title.Still, the relationships between the characters was believable. I also appreciated that the ending was not wrapped up in neat bow.


    10. Great hook since I can definitely picture the earth becoming too hot and full of dangerous radiation in the not too distant future, and I liked Kiva's story and world. But the instant romance connection thing kind of bugged me, and the middle of the book seemed to bog down a little bit. In any event, pretty intriguing sci-fi with a twist that I didn't see coming.


    11. I was given a copy of this book by the author for research for his YA Debut Author interview that will be posted on my site in December.I will not be rating or reviewing the book until after that interview has been posted.


    12. Very enjoyable. I needed a quick engaging read and this was it, but there would really be a lot to talk about if this was a book club book.





    13. I'm very fond of science fiction when it is done well. I found this story to be creative and very engaging. It is a great work of science fiction for young adults.


    14. Phenomenal worldbuilding, strong characters, and a fast-paced plot. If you like character-driven sci-fi, this is the book for you.






    15. I'm not really that into sci-fi type of stories, but I'm trying to branch out of my comfort zone a little and I was given the chance to read The Exo Project early and it sounded really good. I thought it sounded more dystopian than sci-fi, which had me sold!While The Exo Project is a sci-fi read . . . it didn't really read like one, which was good. I mean, there were several elements and concepts throughout the book to indicate as such, but I was so engrossed in the story that it didn't stick ou [...]


    16. "My peopleeverything we touch we destroy." Wow! This book has the feel of an Orson Scott Card book--I trusted DeYoung's writing right away and felt pulled in, wanting to know more about the Exo Project and our protagonist Matthew. I loved the sci fi and world building of this novel--I won't give it away, but I will say that the details we get at the beginning are significant, and pay off in some really surprising, moving realizations. This novel is a powerful call, exhorting our world to change- [...]


    17. Full disclosure: the author of this book hired me for publicity.However, I only take on clients if I know that I can get behind their books 100%. And I am definitely 100% behind this book.This is a disarmingly simple story that contains skeins of tension behind the characters and their motivations. It gripped me from the start, and I believe the situation that leads to the planet search is an alarmingly possible scenario.I love Kiva. And I loathe Kyre. Is war universal? Is there any hope for man [...]
