Jeffrey Kluger's New Novel is a Thrilling Adventure in Space With a Nod to the Environment.

Walli Beckwith is a model astronaut on assignment aboard the International Space Station. A freak accident sends the crew back to Earth, but Walli shocks the world by refusing to leave her post. At first her protest is a mystery, but soon the world realizes that she has an unforgiving view of the atrocities happening in the Brazilian rainforest which the governments of the world feign ignorance. How far will Walli go to do what she knows is right? Will her protest affect change? This is Jeffrey Kluger’s new novel—it’s called Holdout. Jeffrey Kluger is a science journalist, an editor at Time, and author of the bestselling book, Apollo 13, which went on to become the basis of the 1995 Academy Award winning film. Holdout is a thrilling read with a purpose. Kluger’s expertise on space and our space program along with his compelling characters bring this exciting story to life.
