Boston College graduate Gina Damico has published Waste of Space (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017), a novel geared for teens and young adults. What comes next in the world of television when it feels like everything has already been done? A TV executive decides to launch 10 teens into space and broadcast their journey for an out-of-this-world reality show called “Waste of Space.” The show is a tremendous success, with millions of people tuning in. But the cast members and the audience are unaware that the production is a fake. According to Kirkus Review, “Like the TV show it’s about, nothing in this novel is as it seems, but the journey to discover the truth is out of this world.” Damico’s previous works include, Wax, Hellhole, and the Croak trilogy.
