best story ever!! I love a good sci-fi story and this one is great.
An interesting read. This is a young adult novel and set in a future time and place with people who settled on another planet after leaving earth. The overall message may be to be happy with who you are and where you are, but it is a story of a family and their interactions with others.

It was a short and enjoyable read.
