Saving Mars
by Cidney Swanson 

Goodreads synopsis:
When the food supply of Mars’ human settlement is decimated, seventeen-year-old Jessamyn Jaarda, the best pilot Mars Colonial has ever seen, flies to Earth to raid for food. Earth-Mars relations couldn’t be worse, and her brother is captured during the raid. Breaking rules of secrecy and no contact, Jess finds an ally in Pavel, nephew to a government official, but their friendship only makes more agonizing the choice before her: Save her brother or save her planet?
I first heard about Saving Mars on Sue Moro's YouTube channel, and have also recently watched her excellent review of the book (which only made me want to read it more). This is a YA science-fiction novel unlike anything I've heard of before, because of one simple thing; the main character is from Mars, not Earth. This really intrigues me, especially as I've never read any science fiction that really involves The Red Planet before, so I'm really interested to see how this is dealt with.
Couple that with Sue's obvious enthusiasm for the series, and I think we're onto a winner here! I trust her opinion on books, so I'm pretty sure I will enjoy this one. I'm hoping to get it on my Kindle very soon.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
