Dreams Bigger Than Heartbreak

Tor Teen. (Unstoppable: Bk. 2). Apr. 2022. 320p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9781250317391.
Gr 9 Up–Tina Mains has joined the Royal Space Academy, but she’s neither the heroine they were expecting nor as center stage as she was in Victories Greater Than Death. Rachael Townsend, Tina’s best friend and an accomplished artist, took control of an alien weapon with her mind which has left her unable to create art. Elza, Tina’s trans love interest, is determined to enter the Palace of Scented Tears and leave it a princess. With the worldbuilding established, Anders here sets a larger plot in motion, and readers will be pleased to find that while everyone is preparing for war, our queer heroes are determined to find joy in their lives.
VERDICT Anders improves upon her first installment with tighter writing and deeper characters; recommended for general purchase.
