Jamey Barlowe has been crippled since childhood, the result of being born on the Moon. He lives his life in a wheelchair, only truly free when he is in the water. But then Jamey's father sends him, along with five other kids, back to the Moon to escape a political coup d'etat that has occurred overnight in the United States. Moreover, one of the other five refugees is more than she appears. Their destination is the mining colony, Apollo. Jamey will have to learn a whole new way to live, one that entails walking for the first time in his life. It won't be easy and it won't be safe. But Jamey is determined to make it as a member of Lunar Search and Rescue, also known as the Rangers. This job is always risky, but could be even more dangerous if the new U.S. president makes good on her threat to launch a military invasion. Soon Jamey is front and center in a political and military struggle stretching from the Earth to the Moon. From the Hardcover edition.

Modern take on Heinlein's book.
Only real difference to today's world that they replace oil for Helium 3 for fueling the world.
A real crimp for Middle east & Russia huh?
World building on moonbase real & plausible.
Even odds there will be a sequel.

This book is so good! I loved it. I hope that there is a sequel, and I hope to read some of the author's other books!
