Notes From Your Bookseller

This multilayered YA space adventure follows Pendt, who has had to fight for survival against her own family for her entire life on their interstellar spacecraft. Pendt jumps at the chance for escape during a space station layover and teams up with the wealthy Brannick twins to leave behind the only lives they’ve ever known. Magic, science fiction and familial loyalties come together in this exciting tale.

A thought-provoking new YA space adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Ahsoka.

Set on a family-run interstellar freighter called the Harland and a mysterious remote space station, E. K. Johnston's latest is story of survival and self-determination.

Pendt Harland's family sees her as a waste of food on their long-haul space cruiser when her genes reveal an undesirable mutation. But if she plays her cards right she might have a chance to do much more than survive. During a space-station layover, Pendt escapes and forms a lucky bond with the Brannick twins, the teenage heirs of the powerful family that owns the station. Against all odds, the trio hatches a long-shot scheme to take over the station and thwart the destinies they never wished for.
