index (8)Lady Astronaut Book 1 By Mary Robinette Kowal

Set in an alternate post WWII reality after a meteor wipes out much of the US East Coast and threatens to make Earth uninhabitable, leading to an acceleration of the Space Program as mankind’s last hope. Elma York is a genius mathematician and former WWII WASP pilot who has to fight for the rights of women and coloured people to join the space program and contribute to mankind’s survival. The Calculating Stars tells the story of a strong smart woman and her struggle to overcome anxiety, discrimination, and the unwillingness of people to work.
