Nebraska high schooler Emma just wants to get through the school day... never mind the fuss her friends are making about the upcoming dance. But then she's called into an assembly where the President announces something that will change the world...

This fun little story is like one of those samplers they hand out at grocery stores... it gives you just enough of a taste to leave you wanting more. It's the first of 4 planned prequel short stories to Edwin Peng's STAR CITY sci-fi series and teases

The Announcement is a great teaser for readers before the launch of Star City. It gives a glimpse of the characters and their lives.

The main character, Emma, is a talented and driven young woman whose friends share different interests from herself. She's still very young, and I see areas where she will certainly be able to grow throughout the story, especially with her work, but I won't give too much detail because this is definitely a good chance to pick it up (:

This story did a good job of building suspense for the main Star City novel.
Good introduction to this series. I really liked the "sneak peak" -- the first two chapters of Star City. I'm eager to learn more about Emma, the Ba’ren, and Sepporinen!
