The highly anticipated follow-up to Janet Edward's sensational YA sci-fi debut, Earth Girl.
18-year-old Jarra has a lot to prove. After being awarded one of the military's highest honours for her role in a daring rescue attempt, Jarra finds herself - and her Ape status - in the spotlight. Jarra is one of the unlucky few born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Derided as an `ape' - a `throwback' - by the rest of the universe, Jarra is on a mission to prove that Earth Girls are just as good as everyone else.
Except now the planet she loves is under threat by what could be humanity's first ever alien contact. Jarra's bravery - and specialist knowledge - will once again be at the centre of the maelstrom, but will the rest of the universe consider Earth worth fighting for?
Janet Edwards lives in the Midlands. As a child, she read everything she could get her hands on, which included the works of many of the great names of Science Fiction. She has a husband, a son, a lot of books, and an aversion to housework.
