“The Calculating Stars” by Mary Robinette Kowal

book coverFor fans of Hidden Figures!  In this fascinating alternate history novel, a meteorite hits the United States in 1952, causing massive destruction and ensuring that Earth will eventually become uninhabitable.  Elma York, a WWII pilot and a mathematical genius, barely escapes with her life and her husband.  The world quickly realizes that if humans are to survive, they will need to accelerate the space race in order to colonize other planets. The Yorks are integral parts of this mission, but it soon becomes clear to Elma that she will have to push, and push hard, for women to be included in the astronaut training program.  You will thrill to see humans working together toward such an amazing goal, seethe at the social injustices so apparent in this new and changing world, and cheer at every triumph Elma earns through her determination and courage. And you’ll just have to read this wonderful book to see if Elma will become a Lady Astronaut!
