    For anyone who has read the Wool series, you know how good Hugh Howie is.
    I just got his new book, Halfway Home, for free as part of the Prime Kindle book program.
    Only read 1 chapter so far but its excellent.

    Here's the synopsis from GoodReads, I honestly didn't realize it was aimed at the YA audience but i guess it makes sense.

    Less than sixty kids awaken on a distant planet. The colony ship they arrived on is aflame. The rest of their contingent is dead. They've only received half their training, and they are being asked to conquer an entire planet. Before they can, however, they must first survive each other.In this gritty tale of youths struggling to survive, Hugh Howey fuses the best of young adult fantasy with the piercing social commentary of speculative fiction. The result is a book that begs to be read in a single sitting. An adventurous romp that will leave readers exhausted and begging for more.
