The Martian by Andy Weir.
Mars mission goes afoul, 5/6 crew members escape, but one gets left behind. The story of his attempts to survive and the absolute clusterfuck that ensues when NASA discovers that he's still alive.
Very much based in science. No impulse engines to save him.
Picked it up for my Birthday, but I've yet to read it, but I've heard it's very good from many people. Looking forward to diving into it
