Susan Kearney returns to the universe of The Challenge, this time following the adventures of Dora. In the first book, Dora was the sentient computer who is almost like family to the protagonists. Now, Dora-whose computer mind is that of a capricious teenager, except with access to all of the information ever put onto disk-wants a body. She wants to be human. She wants to experience feelings, not just catalogue them. And she wants to kiss Zical, desperately. She transfers her computer mind into the body that she believes Zical would find attractive-but she's still only sixteen. And now she has to figure out how to work her clumsy human limbs, how to walk without falling over, and how to deal with the strange ache in her chest. It doesn't help that she and Zical are stranded on a strange new planet (and she wasn't sup- posed to have followed him!), and they don't have the use of their psychic powers...
