Looking for the name of a book series I read in middle school, 2001-2004 roughly. All I can remember about it was that there were a handful of teenagers who somehow ended up on an alien planet that they eventually found out to be a ship. They have to fight for survival against multiple different enemies, I think one of the kids could communicate with part of the ship telepathically. Some of the aliens were either blue or I think even transparent. There really isn't too much to work off of, but I figured someone might know what it is.

  • @katie Lingoes - You should post this as an answer, not add it to the question; "It was called Remnants - a book series by K A Applegate"

    Answered - Remnants by K. A. Applegate Jul 29, 2014 at 14:45

1 Answer 1


Since I don't think Katie is coming back, she realized (and posted in her question) that the series was Remnants by K.A. Applegate.

Cover of first book, "The Mayflower Project"

From the Wikipedia summary of the series:

It is the story of what happens to the survivors of a desperate mission to save a handful of human beings after an asteroid collides with the Earth. Eighty people are placed aboard a converted space shuttle using untested "quack" hibernation technology and fired blindly into space hours before all life on Earth is obliterated by a large asteroid called The Rock. They are then picked up by a large, sentient space craft of monumental proportions known as 'Mother' which is inhabited by various races. 'Mother' can manipulate the physical environment within the craft's limits and often does so. Only a few people placed in stasis actually were alive and capable of being reanimated when they reached 'Mother'.

  • This officialy qualifies as waiting long enough for something to be fair game.

  • As much as anything, it marks the question as having an answer so that it doesn't show up as "unanswered". ^_^

  • I was thinking of Animorphs when I read this question. It's so funny that it was actually by Applegate!
