The Space Between Us

Two worlds. One connection.

The Space Between Us
After arriving to help colonize Mars, an astronaut dies while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet, but never reveals who the father is. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot, an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing. While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, he begins an online friendship with a street smart girl named Tulsa. When he finally gets a chance to go to Earth, he is eager to experience all of the wonders he could only read about on Mars. But after his explorations begin, scientists discover that his organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere. Gardner joins with Tulsa on a race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be, and where he belongs in the universe.
