Recommended by Mikala: Wow! The Martian was one of the best books I've read in a long time. An amiable engineer, Mark Watney gets left behind on Mars after a mission landing gone wrong.  This is a sci-fi book with a friendly touch of humanity- a must read!!

Published: Dutton Books for Young Readers - January 10th, 2012

Recommended by Emily - This book is amazing! It's probably the best realistic-fiction based novel that I have read this year. It manages a lighthearted tone while keeping a tounge-in-cheek analysis of the life of a cancer patient.
