Young Carmen Dula and her family are embarking on the adventure of a lifetime-they're going to Mars. But Carmen's rebellious streak leads her to venture out into the bleak Mars landscape alone, where she is saved by an angel. An angel with too many arms and legs, a head that looks like a potato gone bad-and a message for the humans on Mars: We were here first...

mknopp ,

Good first book in what should have been a two book series.

I just wanted to write this as a counter to Gig 'Em's review which stated not to read the rest of the series. While I agree that the book can stand on its own very well and is a good story, I feel that Starbound adds a lot of further information to clarify and extend and show growth in the characters from this book. Now I completely agree that Earthbound is not a suggested read. So, I would recommend Starbound as a worthy sequel, but consider it the end of the series.

Gig 'Em '06 ,

Good book, but don't read the rest of the series.

This book stands pretty well on its own, and on its own it's fairly interesting. That said, it's part of a three-book series, and I would discourage reading the next two books if you want to hang on to a nice memory of the first one.
