ARC Four Star Review: The Disasters by M.K. England

The Disasters is a laugh out loud mash-up of characters so diverse that even when you think you know where they lie on the spectrum of diversity, two chapters later you realize they have a multi-cultural and sexual orientation chasm going on in one character.

Oh and the dedication, which I love.
To everyone who's ever felt like a disaster. Here, have a spaceship! Now fly.
