An exciting read, full of suspense. — The School Librarian
I love Nick Lake's writing. I would read anything he wrote - grocery list, email etc., because his writing, always, is so real and so brave. He takes on subjects other writers might avoid, and he writes the hell out of them. — Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author
Nick Lake's book grips from the off, combining elements of science fiction and thriller for a page-turning read. A powerful vision of space and science, at its core Satellite is a story about the need to belong - a universal story about a universal dream. — INIS Reading Guide, Children's Books Ireland
