About the Author
Praise For 172 Hours on the Moon…
A 2013 YALSA Teens Top Ten Nominee
"This irresistible premise is often intoxicating and occasionally downright terrifying.... pretty darn effective."
"Imaginative.... Well-crafted suspense.... Interesting and original."
"Harstad combines the perfectly paced creepiness of classic Twilight Zone episodes with Battlestar Galactica's chilling portrayal of the vast, unknowable emptiness of space."
"Creepy and bleak, Harstad's story is both psychologically and atmospherically disturbing."
"Original, creepy, intense... 172 Hours is page-turning sci-fi that will stay with readers long after the shocking and heartbreaking conclusion."
-School Library Journal
"Surprisingly creepy.... The novel's strength is its rising tension and skin-crawling conclusion: Scandinavian thriller meets sci-fi horror movie."
"Hard to put down."
