An interesting take on "alien" cultures and the trials of a girl from Earth (Cass) as she encounters them.

(view spoiler)

The story is well-paced, giving enough detail about everyday life for Cass, without being detail-heavy. It's nice to have a female character that isn't to the extremes of being completely depressed and whingy, nor is super-ok and almost ignoring what's happened. She has been written with a nice balance - vulnerable and homesick (without the feeling of getting too bogged down in this) but trying to make the best out of what's happening at any given time, even if it doesn't work out quite as expected.

Reminds me a little of Acorna from Anne McCaffrey's books, but Cass and the worlds she explores are very definitely their own story.
