I Hope You Get This Message

Farah Naz Rishi

Ages 13+

News stations across the country are reporting mysterious messages that Earth has been receiving from a planet—Alma— claiming to be its creator. If they’re being interpreted correctly, in seven days Alma will hit the kill switch on their “colony” Earth.

True or not, for teenagers Jesse Hewitt, Cate Collins, and Adeem Khan, the prospect of this ticking time bomb will change their lives forever.

Jesse, who has been dealt one bad blow after another, wonders if it even matters what happens to the world. Cate, on the other hand, is desperate to use this time to find the father she never met. And Adeem, who hasn’t spoken to his estranged sister in years, must find out if he has it in him to forgive her for leaving.

With only a week to face their truths and right their wrongs, Jesse, Cate, and Adeem’s paths collide as their worlds are pulled apart.

"I really enjoyed reading I Hope You Get This Message. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes sci fi or adventure YA fiction books. I found there were a few slow parts, but all the other parts were so amazing that it made reading the slow ones completely worth it! I loved that even though all the characters had much different lives than mine, I could still relate to them. I would give this book 10/10, and I hope everyone who reads it loves it as much as I did."
