What is it About?

Brett, a teen-aged girl alone in the world decides to take the chance of a lifetime and become part of colonization experiment on another planet.  A 500 year sleep life on the new planet Brett starts a new life, new friends, and new species.

My Thoughts:

I don’t usually read Science Fiction that often I am more of a fantasy girl.  The more I read of Science Fiction I am realizing I don’t really have any good reason for that because when it is a good written Sci-Fi with developed characters the genre is just as fun as any.

Teen Brett does brood like most young adults but it does not last long.  As soon she is on the new planet she is like a different person.   She is treated like an adult and has knowledge that helps her to develop an adult life on the new planet.

There were some interesting thoughts on the science of the planet and different species.  I especially liked there animal friend named Caper.  

Some things I did feel I saw coming though.  Like the reason Brett wants Ryan to sleep upside down in the pods.  

Very smart and likable characters in a imaginative world. And ack that ending!  What a cliffhanger!

Looks interesting! I'm a fan of YA sci-fi and am surprised I haven' heard of it before now. Nice cover, too.

Yeah I haven't seen it in book stores yet. Really deserves it's due.
