DESCRIPTION AND GENERAL HYPERBOLE
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 find and board NASA’s Ark, a massive space craft said to be 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.
This is Zero Gravity, Tom LaMarr’s YA novel for teens aged 13-98 and 2018 finalist for “Indies” Book of the Year – Young Adult.
(5/5) Zero Gravity is packed with incredible, hilarious imagery, characters, and landscapes… This humorous, vivid novel is fast-paced, smart, and surreal—perfect for floating the hours away.
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 go.
