Marissa | 8 comments At the end of the book once she returns (to Earth—England I believe??) she runs towards her parents in a rush, their relationship becoming restored, and she and the alien part ways, promising to see each other again.

Marissa is still looking for this and wrote:

"young adult, sci-fi, space, aliens, girl is sent to a space camp/spaceship for being rowdy in school, she ends up befriending an alien who is seen as a threat to the adults, she wants to be a pilot I believe

book was read in 2011-2013, possibly published in the 80s-90s. I only remember very vague details about the book I’m afraid:
- young girl is sent to some type of space camp/space shop for being rowdy in school
- she ends up be friending an alien who is seen as a threat to the “authority figures” on the ship
- girl wants to become a pilot of some sort I believe
- girl’s parents (I believe) have passed away, so she lives with relatives"

Do you remember whether her parents were killed, or rather they were not killed and they meet again?

Did she think for the whole book that they had been killed?


message 5: by Marissa (new)

Marissa | 8 comments I feel like she was worried that something had happened to them throughout the book. I honestly can’t remember if she was worried about them being killed or not.

Is the alien male or female, is it a romance with the girl and the alien, or a friendship?


message 7: by Marissa (new)

Marissa | 8 comments The alien is male, and it’s just a friendship between the two of them
