The Gravity of Us follows Cal, a budding journalist with an online indie show with a decent following. All at once, the NYC native is transplanted to Texas, where his father begins work at NASA as an astronaut for a Mars expedition launch. This book is less about Cal and his romance with Leon, another astronaut's kid, and more about media ethics and dealing with different personalities. It's a cool, original, fun book I read very quickly, but Cal grated on my nerves... probably as he should have. I admire writers who can write successful books with characters very strong willed and imperfect.
Love it, and I'm glad I got the opportunity to read this
