Book Birthday Bash: The Disasters

Book Birthday Bash


THE DISASTERS by M.K. EnglandHappy Book Birthday to THE DISASTERS!

THE DISASTERS is like that friend who you know could be an amazing person if they could only start making good life choices. But they don’t. Instead there are explosions, and crashing spaceships, and police, and somehow they end up getting blamed for everything, even the things they didn’t do. They’ll turn it around, though. The right friends, the right ship, the right opportunity for some thrilling heroics, and they’ll shine.

This young adult novel is like Guardians of the Galaxy meets The Breakfast Club—snarky, action-y fun for everyone, even if you don’t like sci-fi.

We’re so happy you’re at our party for THE DISASTERS. Join in the fun…


Though Nax and company spend a lot of time listening to explosions and the silence of space, they speed through life as if flying to an adrenaline-filled soundtrack! A combination of The Prodigy, Riz MC, M.I.A., Angel Haze, and a local D.C.-area band, All the Best Kids. Check out the playlist.

The cast of THE DISASTERS, Ellis Station Academy, and the settled planets of the galaxy at large are truly international affairs. This book’s party needs comfort food from countries all over the world!


There’s a flight simulator here, of course, and Nax challenges everyone and is slightly irritating and smug about it. You still like him, though. You can’t help it. Even when you lose horribly.


Everyone gets their own spaceship!

…and by that, I mean their own rocketship enamel pin, along with some bookmarks and rainbow rocketship stickers.

She loves Star Wars with a desperate, heedless passion. It’s best if you never speak of Sherlock Holmes in her presence. You’ll regret it. THE DISASTERS is her debut novel.
