Publisher's Summary

Ender's Game meets The 100 at an interstellar military boarding school in a romantic new series from New York Times best-selling author Kass Morgan! 

Reeling from a devastating attack by a mysterious enemy, the Quatra Fleet Academy is opening its doors to a new class of cadets from every planet in the solar system. 

Hotshot pilot Vesper dreams of becoming a captain, but when she loses her spot to a wisecracking boy from the wrong side of the asteroid belt, she begins to question everything she thought she knew. Trapped on the toxic planet Deva, Cormak will take any chance he can to join the Academy - even if he has to steal someone's identity to get there. Arran was always an outcast on icy Chetire and is looking for a place to belong. He just never thought it would be in the arms of the hottest guy in the galaxy. And Oreliahas infiltrated the fleet to complete a mission, one that threatens the security of everyone around her. But if anyone finds out who she really is, it'll be her life on the line.... 

As worlds collide at the Academy, these four cadets will have to learn to work together if they want to survive. But how do you begin to trust the very people you've spent a lifetime learning to hate? Light Years is the first book in a thrilling and romantic new sci-fi series from the best-selling author of The 100.

Critic Reviews

"In this character-driven sci-fi series starter, Morgan...offers smooth, easy prose, clever wit, and excellent character-building." (Publishers Weekly)

"Dark and riveting. A mash-up of The Lord of the Flies, Across the Universe, and The Hunger Games." (Booklist)

"...phenomenal...readers will be itching for more when they finish... A must-purchase for fans of the author and science fiction/romance." (School Library Journal)

maybe sci-fi wasn't the best choice for this story

the book is very middling and has a lot of problems, but it's far from terrible. on one hand there is a pretty good YA story in here but when it's spread out between 4 characters it starts to feel like you seen this before. on the other hand the sci-fi story telling just isn't very good if you are used to reading that type of book.
TL;DR
-this is no enders game
-the ending is very unsatisfying
