Description

In this futuristic, outer space thriller, Terra has to decide between supporting the rebellion she believes in--and saving the life of the boy she loves. For generations, those aboard the Asherah have lived within strict rules meant to help them survive the journey from a doomed Earth to their promised land, the planet Zehava-which may or may not be habitable, a question whose imperative grows now, in the dwindling months before touchdown. Sixteen-year-old Terra's situation is tough. A dead mom. A grieving dad. A bitchy boss, and a betrothed who won't kiss her no matter how bad she wants it. She's doing her best to stay afloat, even when she gets assigned a vocation she has no interest in: botany. But after Terra witnesses the Captain's guard murder an innocent man, she's drawn into a secret rebellion bent on restoring power to the people. The stakes are higher than anything she could have imagined. When the rebellion gives Terra an all-important mission, she has to decide where her loyalties lie for once and for all. Because she has started to fall for the boy she's been sent to assassinate...

Review quote

* "This absorbing page-turner [avoids] the clichéd extremes of much recent young adult science fiction...Terra herself is equal parts strength and vulnerability, neither preternaturally heroic nor innately naïve. Genuinely surprising revelations near the end and a lack of resolution suggest probable sequels to this first-rate science fiction novel, a worthy successor for Revis' Across the Universe."--BCCB, starred review
