Summary

An original novel based on the explosive new TV series Star Trek: Discovery!

Despite being an inexperienced Starfleet cadet, Sylvia Tilly became essential to the USS Discovery finding its way back home from the Mirror Universe. But how did she find that courage? From where did she get that steel? Who nurtured that spark of brilliance? The Way to the Stars recounts for fans everywhere the untold story of Tilly’s past.

It’s not easy being 16, especially when everyone expects great things from Tilly. It’s even harder when her mother and father are Federation luminaries, not to mention pressing her to attend one of the best schools that the Federation has to offer. Tilly wants to achieve great things - even though she hasn’t quite worked out how to do that or what it is she wants to do. But this year, everything will change for Tilly, as she about to embark upon the adventure of a lifetime - an adventure that will take her ever closer to the stars....

Crappy teen drama

Very poor. the other disco books haven't been to bad but this was utter rubbish. Basically a crappy teen drama set in a school for most of the book.

loved the origin story of my favourite Discovery character. But wow the irish/scottish/Aussie accents all sound Russian.

not necessarily a book for teen girls.

not necessarily a book for teen girls with mommy problems not star trek fans. a coming of age story for a girl who even in the show still come across a kid. not the start trek I'm used to and I have read them all and seen all the shows movies heck even the cartoon had better storys.

a poor story

The plot is unoriginal and mostly dull,there is little to recommend this book. It needs better characters and storyline in this dull story.
