EARTH STAR by Janet Edwards
I received a promotional copy of Earth Star by Janet Edwards from the Publishers this morning for a 'Giveaway' prize on my blog which I will put up very soon along with my review.
Thank you so very much to Rosie Bathurst at HarperFiction/HarperCollins. I was thrilled to receive your email and this offer.
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?
