4.5 stars. I almost would've preferred this written as an adult SF novel. It had enough depth. The science was fantastic. The world-building was great. The only thing that jarred were the pics that didn't seem to match the descriptions given in the book. It's like the publisher thought this wasn't middle grade enough, so tried to fix it by adding cartoonish images.

She is surprised when her parents decide to

Dorky jokes, high flying space adventures, with a dash of amazing anxiety in children rep. This is a unique and important book. I just wasn't the best audience for it.
