Alison Goodman's first novel - in a very special new edition!
Seventeen-year-old Joss is a rebel, and a student of time travel at the prestigious Centre for Neo-Historical Studies. This year, for the first time, the Centre has an alien student: Mavkel, from the planet Choria. And Mavkel has chosen Joss, of all people, as his roommate and study partner. Then Mavkel gets sick. Joss quickly realizes that his will to live is draining away. The only way she can help Mavkel is by breaking the Centre's strictest rules - and that means going back in time to change history. This new Firebird edition of Alison Goodman's acclaimed first genre-bending adventure features a short story about Joss and Mav's after-book adventures, originally published in Firebirds Rising.
"A brilliant, resourceful 17-year-old who chafes at authority narrates this tale of galactic conspiracy unfolding at an elite high school," said PW. "Readers will likely find that not only do they need to read this novel a second time in order to catch all the details, they will look forward to it." Ages 12-up.
