Jill Paton Walsh's classic science fiction novel The Green Book is now available from Square Fish with a brand–new cover!
Pattie and her family are among the last refugees to flee a dying Earth in an old spaceship. And when the group finally lands on the distant planet which is to be their new home, it seems that the four-year journey has been a success. But as they begin to settle this shiny new world, they discover that the colony is in serious jeopardy. Nothing on this planet is edible, and they may not be able to grow food. With supplies dwindling, Pattie and her sister decide to take the one chance that might make life possible on Shine.
Short but good
Very short story but still engaging and upbuilding. The point was well made, though I wish it could have been full novel length
A must see
When I first saw this I thought it was going to be a cheesy journey of a girl who gets lost and wanders the universe but it is actually very realistic other than the fact that it's sci-fi.
