9780007443512: Earth Flight

Jarra never wanted to be a celebrity. All she ever wanted was to gain some respect for the people left on Earth: the unlucky few whose immune system prevents them from portaling to other planets.

Except now she's the most famous Earth girl in the universe - but not everyone in the universe is happy about it, nor the fact that she has found love with a norm. Jarra's actions have repercussions that spread further than she ever could have imagined, and political unrest threatens to tear apart the delicate balance of peace between humanity's worlds.

On top of everything, the first alien artifact ever discovered appears to be waiting for Jarra to reveal its secrets. But to do so, she must somehow find a way to leave Earth - or else the alien artifact will be lost forever. Is there a way for Jarra to travel to another planet? Or is her destiny only to look to the stars - but never to reach them?

About the Author:

Janet Edwards is the author of Earth Girl and Earth Star. As a child in England, she read everything she could get her hands on, including a huge amount of science fiction and fantasy. She studied mathematics at Oxford, and went on to suffer years of writing unbearably complicated technical documents before deciding to write something that was fun for a change. She has a husband, a son, a lot of books, and an aversion to housework.

Review:

“This thrilling finale takes the Earth Girl trilogy to astonishing new heights. Edwards never fails to impress and entertain, expanding her brilliantly imagined SF universe while constantly raising the personal stakes for Jarra. I want more!”
 
—E. C. Myers, author of the Andre Norton Award–winning Fair Coin and The Silence of Six
Praise for Earth Girl:

"Action, rich archaeological detail and respectfully levelheaded disability portrayal, refreshingly free from symbolism and magical cures, make this stand out." - Kirkus STARRED REVIEW

"Tired of bitter, angst-ridden heroines and their associated dark dystopias? Look no further than Edwards' refreshing debut." - Booklist STARRED 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

"A break from the norms." - SFX
