But soaring in her glider is the closest she can get to touching the stars--until she stakes her inheritance on a salvage Navy spaceship.On its shakedown cruise, Kitra's ship plunges into hyperspace, stranding Kitra and her crew light years away. Tensions rise between Kitra and her shipmates: the handsome programmer, Fareedh; Marta, biologist and Kitra's ex-girlfriend; Peter, the panicking engineer, and the oddball alien navigator, Pinky.Now, running low on air and food, it'll take all of them working together to get back home.
"I really enjoyed this fun space adventure! A likable cast of characters helps this story to come alive. Read for friendship, hope, some close calls, and a kick-butt female captain." Emily Powell
"I struggled to tear myself away from it to get back to my shift in a way very few YA novels have done for me lately. It also doesn’t take very long to establish the world of the novel (no long info-dumps, a win in my book) and doesn’t talk down to its audience.
I highly recommend this work and can’t wait for more in the future! 5/5" Acacia Weber
"I truly enjoyed Kitra, in fact so much that I recommend it to everyone. It is so well-written and captivating that it constantly keeps your interest alive, always making you want to read more to see what happens next. Will they overcome the next obstacle in their adventure, will they be able to work through their differences in order to accomplish their goal?" Denisa Predescu
