Book Review for 'S.E.A.M.S. 16: A New Home' by Eric B. Thomasma

S.E.A.M.S. 16: A New Home was written by Eric B. Thomasma and is available for purchase at http://www.seams16.com/
Life has never been easy for Charlie and Susan Samplin and their married life together has consisted of one struggle after another. All that is about to change when Charlie is offered an amazing job on S.E.A.M.S. 16, an S.E.A. maintenance station in space. The station is everything that Charlie has ever dreamed of, but Susan believes it just may be too good to be true. After a tour of the station and much consideration, the couple decide to give life in space a try and embark on a new journey together in a new home.
The Samplins are welcomed with open arms and quickly fit into the scheme of things on S.E.A.M.S. 16. But a series of curious and tragic events place them in the midst of an investigation into the origins of a mysterious find and the perpetrator of the terrible crimes against the space station.
S.E.A.M.S. 16 is a very interesting read with descriptive passages and well placed characters that make it easy to immerse yourself directly in the midst of the story. I stepped out of my reading 'comfort zone' with S.E.A.M.S. 16 and was glad that I did. This is a fantastic YA Sci-Fi read and I can see this book translating easily onto the big screen. I must say, I am looking forward to the second book in this series.
I am giving S.E.A.M.S. 16: A New Home a 3-spider rating. If you find your life on earth a little too boring or mundane and long to be transported away, then pick up a copy of Eric B. Thomasma's S.E.A.M.S. 16: A New Home and let the adventure begin.
