Publisher Description

Ship hurtles through space. Deep within its core, it carries the seed of humankind. Launched by the people of a dying Earth over a century ago, its mission is to find a habitable world for the children—fifteen-year-old Zoheret and her shipmates—whom it has created from its genetic banks.

To Zoheret and her shipmates, Ship has been mother, father, and loving teacher, preparing them for their biggest challenge: to survive on their own, on an uninhabited planet, without Ship's protection. Now that day is almost upon them...but are they ready to leave Ship? Ship devises a test. And suddenly, instincts that have been latent for over a hundred years take over. Zoheret watches as friends become strangers—and enemies. Can Zoheret and her companions overcome the biggest obstacle to the survival of the human race—themselves?

An Enjoyable Read

This book is definitely a diamond in the rough. Not many people have discovered it, but it is definitely an interesting page turner.

I was hooked from the very beginning. The pace was very fast. This book has been compared to Lord of the Flies. If you enjoyed that book as I did, you will enjoy this one.

Why did I give the book four stars out of five? Even though the plot hooked you in from the beginning to the very end, I didn't think it was the best developed plot. The book turned in a direction I wouldn't have predicted, and honestly, I didn't think it was the best direction. I can't complain too much though because I couldn't stop reading.
