9780007443505: Earth Star (Earth Girl Trilogy 2)

The highly anticipated follow-up to Janet Edward’s sensational YA sci-fi debut, Earth Girl.

18-year-old Jarra has a lot to prove. After being awarded one of the military’s highest honours for her role in a daring rescue attempt, Jarra finds herself – and her Ape status – in the spotlight. Jarra is one of the unlucky few born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Derided as an ‘ape’ – a ‘throwback’ – by the rest of the universe, Jarra is on a mission to prove that Earth Girls are just as good as everyone else.

Except now the planet she loves is under threat by what could be humanity’s first ever alien contact. Jarra’s bravery – and specialist knowledge – will once again be at the centre of the maelstrom, but will the rest of the universe consider Earth worth fighting for?

Review:

‘With a dash of action, sprinkling of romance, some teenage angst and a couple of collapsing skyscrapers, this novel contains everything you could possibly want to grab a teenage reader and keep them utterly enthralled’ Starburst Magazine

‘A break from the norms’ SFX magazine

‘In her debut novel, Janet Edwards has created an authentic futuristic world with enough history and adventure to keep readers captivated’ Amazon Kindle Editors’ Pick – August Book of the Month 2012

‘Earth Girl delivers a shiny future you’ll actually want to live in – perhaps the first true utopian YA. Refreshingly original with big ideas and even bigger surprises, this thrilling novel is firmly grounded in complex and compelling characters’ – E. C. Myers Author of Quantum Coin
