Rating: 4.7 stars over 10 reviews
Description: When the food supply of Mars' human settlement is decimated, seventeen-year-old Jessamyn Jaarda, the best pilot Mars Colonial has ever seen, flies to Earth to raid for food. Earth-Mars relations couldn't be worse, and her brother is captured during the raid.
Breaking rules of secrecy and no contact, Jess finds an ally in Pavel, nephew to a government official, but their friendship only makes more agonizing the choice before her: Save her brother or save her planet?
Reviews: "I love a good story and Cidney Swanson always gives me one! I instantly cared about these characters and couldn't wait to learn more about life on Mars. I was very impressed by the depth in which we learn about Marsian culture, and equally horrified by the new Earth practice of body-swapping. This book has everything I love in a story - great characters, adventure, a loathsome antagonist, affection, affliction.....ahhhhh! It was great! I cannot wait for the next book, and I highly recommend this book for any young adult fans. Oh and don't forget to check out the Rippler series if you aren't already familiar with Swanson's books."
