"Eighteen-year-old Jarra has a lot to prove. After being awarded one of the military's highest honors 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 anyone 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 center of the maelstrom, but will the rest of the universe consider Earth worth fighting for?"-- Provided by publisher.

Janet Edwards has an interesting writing style, but if you don't mind sometimes redundant paragraphs, this is really a great book. The author has made a completely convincing and detailed universe and faced a very popular topic - humanity's first contact with aliens.
Warning - be prepared for lots of sudden twists!

I loved this book! A mixture of the archeology that we love from the previous book, plus touches of aliens and military ettiquite

"The highly anticipated follow-up to Janet Edwards' 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?"
