In this futuristic, outer space thriller, Terra has to decide between supporting the rebellion she believes in--and saving the life of the boy she loves.

For generations, those aboard the Asherah have lived within strict rules meant to help them survive the journey from a doomed Earth to their promised land, the planet Zehava-which may or may not be habitable, a question whose imperative grows now, in the dwindling months before touchdown.

Sixteen-year-old Terra's situation is tough. A dead mom. A grieving dad. A bitchy boss, and a betrothed who won't kiss her no matter how bad she wants it. She's doing her best to stay afloat, even when she gets assigned a vocation she has no interest in: botany.

But after Terra witnesses the Captain's guard murder an innocent man, she's drawn into a secret rebellion bent on restoring power to the people. The stakes are higher than anything she could have imagined. When the rebellion gives Terra an all-important mission, she has to decide where her loyalties lie for once and for all. Because she has started to fall for the boy she's been sent to assassinate...

Praise for this book

"Starglass is a poignantly written, gripping tale. I just loved it. I really enjoyed the political intrigue, the depth of the characters, the suspense, and the twists and turns, all with the backdrop of space and interstellar travel, which I love. It all felt so original. I can't wait for the sequel." - James Dashner

"Starglass is a richly imagined, beautifully written book. It's science fiction, mystery, and coming of age story all wrapped into one; creative but also firmly grounded in a real human experience, with all its loss, pain, and disillusionment—but also beauty, hope, and belonging. A wonderful story." - Veronica Roth
