“Fast-Paced” … “FUNNY” … “ORIGINAL” … “Smart” …

… and “FUN”

Great reviews … an endorsement from Rodman Philbrick … and now, the announcement that Zero Gravity is an “Indies” Book of the Year (YA Fiction) Finalist. The “Indies” are hosted by Foreword Magazine, which previously gave the novel a 5/5 rating. Their original review concluded, “This humorous, vivid novel is fast-paced, smart, and surreal.”

The story?  In a world where gravity is losing strength and “lightweights” suddenly vanish into the sky, it’s survival of the fattest for bulky Adam Weaver and his family. With Zero G seemingly imminent, the Weavers embark on a dangerous journey to reach and board NASA’s Ark, a massive space craft that represents the last hope for Earth’s survivors.

Is there really a spaceship? Will the Weavers gain passage? And can a kid who once got picked on for being overweight prove that heroes come in all sizes? With danger in every encounter, theirs is a quest like no other, taking readers to new heights of adventure and imagination. So hold on tight and get ready to experience Zero Gravity!

“LaMarr’s first YA novel features not only his trademark humor, but a truly bizarre concept… Fun, funny, original.”

–Boulder Daily Camera

Zero Gravity is The Hunger Games with twice the humor and heart as well as a mind-bending premise. It’s an adventure fantasy that lifts off with all cylinders blazing and never lets up.” 

–Timothy Hillmer, author of Ravenhill


Hailed by three separate publications as a “remarkable first novel,” Tom LaMarr’s October Revolution was praised by prominent authors including Joseph Heller. His other books have also been widely acclaimed. (See “Endorsements, Reviews, and 3 a.m. Blues” below.)
