Ship hurtles through space. Deep within its core it carries the seed of humankind. Launched by the people of a dying Earth over a century ago, its mission is to find a habitable world for the children—fifteen-year-old Zoheret and her shipmates—whom it has created from its genetic banks.   To Zoheret and her shipmates, Ship has been mother, father, and loving teacher, preparing them for their biggest challenge: to survive on their own, on an uninhabited planet, without Ship’s protection. Now that day is almost upon them, but are they ready? Ship devises a test, and suddenly instincts that have been latent for over a hundred years take over. Zoheret watches as friends become strangers—and enemies. Can Zoheret and her companions overcome the biggest obstacle to the survival of the human race—themselves?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This fascinating novel is very reminiscent of the better Heinlein juveniles…A very impressive novel…Should not be overlooked.” SF Chronicle
“It is understandable why this book is getting attention again, almost 30 years since it was written: it’s another YA book that is similar to The Hunger Games…Sargent does a wonderful job of making the story engaging with some surprising twists and turns along the way…Amy Rubinate’s narration was superb…I could always distinguish the voices of the characters, whether it was two females, two males, or a male and a female talking, and at no point did I feel like it was overdramatized.” SFFAudio.com, editorial review
“A melding of the psychological and the high adventure story, this gripping, emotion-evoking narrative is the first young-adult novel by the author of Watchstar and other adult science fiction.” Booklist (starred review)
“The story is thought provoking and full of odd surprises.” School Library Journal
