When Amber DeSoto sees northern lights on Ganymede, she knows something's wrong. No one will listen to an eighteen year old, though, even who's lived on Ganymede most of her life. But if anyone can survive the unexpected, it's Amber, and if the base commander won't listen to her, she might as well figure out how to save the base and its inhabitants on her own.
Amber DeSoto and Florian Schaumann were the youngest survivors of the worst space accident in history. As a result ended up as the poster children of
Ganymede and all other outer planets. Only Amber was not aware of this. All she knew was that Dr. Gunderson was always on her case. She felt that Gunderson was jealous of her because her mother who had been killed in the accident was a famous scientist and the former base commander. She just wanted to be left alone. She resented her new assignment and only wanted to be treated as the intelligent 18 year old that she was. When she realized that something was not right in space, she could not get the adults to listen to her. She finally had to take matters into her own hands.
Amanda learns a lot about herself, her abilities, while others learn that their age and knowledge doesn't always mean they are right.
I really enjoyed this short story. It is a YA science fiction and I recommend it for ages 13 and up.
