Zero Gravity

Young Adult Fiction

Written by Tom LaMarr

In a world where gravity is losing strength and “lightweights” suddenly vanish into the sky, it’s survival of the fattest for bulky Adam Weaver and his family. With Zero G seemingly imminent, the Weavers embark on a dangerous journey to reach and board NASA’s Ark, a massive space craft that represents the last hope for Earth’s survivors.

Is there really a spaceship? Will the Weavers gain passage? And can a kid who once got picked on for being overweight prove that heroes come in all sizes? With danger in every encounter, theirs is a quest like no other, taking readers to new heights of adventure and imagination. So hold on tight and get ready to experience Zero Gravity!


Zero Gravity is The Hunger Games with twice the humor and heart as well as a mind-bending premise. It’s an adventure fantasy that lifts off with all cylinders blazing and never lets up. Hang on for a wild read!” – Timothy Hillmer, author of Ravenhill

Zero Gravity is an intriguing tale, expertly told. Enjoy!” – Rodman Philbrick, author of Freak the Mighty

“…a fabulous, a cotton-candy Mad Max-infused quest. From snack-food-crazed alligators to a weather cult wearing tin-foil helmets, Zero Gravity is packed with incredible, hilarious imagery, characters, and landscapes… Zoo animals roam free, along with crazed televangelists and even some of the bullies from Adam’s school….the zero-gravity crisis alludes to natural disasters that come from climate change, but the novel’s deeper themes are self-discovery and finding balance. Zero Gravity is author Tom LaMarr’s first YA novel, and hopefully not his last. This humorous, vivid novel is fast-paced, smart, and surreal — perfect for floating the hours away.” – Hannah Holman, Foreward Reviews
