Growing Up Weightless (Paperback)

£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Matthias Ronay is a prodigy. He's talented, smart, imaginative, and he's never left the Moon. He dreams of more - of space, of adventure, of glory.



Desperate to explore the galaxy further, he finds himself at odds with his father, Albin, a senior politician in the Lunar government. Albin has expectations for his son, for the legacy he has built on the Moon, and he expects Matthias to fall in line without question.



While Matthias buries himself in computer games to simulate being anywhere but where he is, and Albin attempts to gain support for political plans that he wants to groom Matthias for, can they come to a solution that benefits them both?



GROWING UP WEIGHTLESS is one of John M. Ford's last novels, and another triumph of writing.
