Nanoannie is bored. She wants to go to clubs, wear the latest Earth fashions, and dance with nuke guys. But her life is not exciting. She lives on her family's Pharm with her parents, little sister, and a holo-cat named Fuzzbutt. The closest she gets to clubs are on the Marsnet. And her parents are pressuring her to sign her contract over to Utopia Limited Corp before she's even had a chance to live a little. When Kapera--a friend from online school--shows up at her Pharm asking for help, Nanoannie is quick to jump in the rover and take off. Finally an adventure What Nanoannie and Kapera find at the Smythe's Pharm is more than the girls bargained for.

Kapera only wants to find her parents so they can get to Earth Orbitals and she can be treated for her leukemia. Nanoannie wants to help her friend and experience of little bit of Mars before selling her contract to the first corp that offers to buy it.Life isn't easy when you're just a couple of Mars Girls.… (mais)

I wavered between 3 and 4 stars but I ultimately went with 4 because this book does something that, unfortunately, is very rare.

It tells the story of girls having adventures WITHOUT MEN.

Sure, there are men in the story. But they are incredibly incidental. The story is truly focused on Nanoannie and Kapera and the relationship between them is very well-written. There's an older/younger sister dynamic present which is played up hilariously. But there's also a deeper current of understanding between two girls who are very much isolated in their day-to-day lives and come to rely on one another in the face of overwhelming odds.

I loved both Kapera and Nanoannie. They compliment one another as far as their personalities are concerned and their characters are incredibly well-defined. They act like you'd expect kids their age to act; they can be annoying and imprudent and spoiled and bratty but they are also brave and kind and committed and strong.

The plot is good! Very pulpy, very hard sci-fi stuff but it's done in a very lighthearted way so it never comes across as overwritten. I loved the slang used throughout the book, I loved how the author trusts her readers to understand what she meant without bogging the book down with worldbuilding infodumps. The pacing was uneven...in fact, that was probably one of my biggest issues with the book...there was a portion of maybe the last third of the story that I felt kind of dragged a bit.

There were also some racially insensitive statements in the book unfortunately, but as I'm a white woman I don't think I'm equipped to offer that sort of critique. Things like rape and assault were mentioned but never actually occurred--in fact, there was very little male-driven violence directed at the girls, which is something else I appreciated.

Overall, this is a great book for fans of pulpy sci-fi adventures and/or readers who want more stories where girls and their friendships are put up front and center. ( )

This turned out to be a great airplane read, fast-paced, imaginative, and pungent in its commentary about the workings of colonial politics and corporate clashes from the point of view of a starry-eyed teenager. I was especially amused by the Facer cult described here, in which an entire semi-secret society has been built around the so-called Face on Mars and the whacked out interstellar ambitions of its leaders. The detailed description of various transportation modes, farming techniques, and medical realities kept it all from sliding right over the edge into farce, however, and the friendship between two Mars girls turned out to be both gripping and crucial to the plot's resolution. My only suggestion? It could have used a little more proof-reading. ( )

I won an e-copy through a LibraryThing Giveaway.

Basically: cool and different world-building and style, but wasn't engaging and I DNF it.

I was really excited for Mars Girls after reading Books, Bones & Buffy's 4 star review. However, I couldn't finish reading it. I found it dull and didn't care about the characters.

I made it to page 70 and put it down, and didn't want to go back. I have no desire or need to find out what happens next.

It's written from the POV of both girls, with the slang (mears instead years, etc.), and technology. However, that authentic voice and style might be a turn off for people, including me. At first, it seems cool, but annoying and a barrier, TBH.

The L.D.S Jesuit religious temple and devotees were interesting and I'm happy to see authors exploring religion evolution in the future. It was very weird and I had no idea what was going on with them, besides the creepy cult feeling.

I'm sad I didn't enjoy this one. but...*shrug* ( )

Turzillo tried too hard to world-build, resulting in way too much slang that really affected the flow of the story. ( )

While I have known of Mary Turzillo for years this is the first book of her that I have read. While the novel is well written and has an interesting plot, for some reason I could not really get into the story. That being said, I still recommend it because I can recognize that it is a good novel - it is just not my cup of tea. I have to commend Turzillo for creating a Martian culture alien from current society through the tweaking of language, but just similar enough to be easily recognizable. Many authors do not think of doing this. While it might take a bit to actually understand what she is meaning at first it adds a sense of realism to the novel.
