No book is perfect and this series as one real flaw, at least for me. I can't stand it when an author makes the decision to create 'new' language for the characters. Words like Zan, Bizzed, Powered, Nardle and so on I can do without. It just sounds forced. This is the reason I didn't give this book five stars. With that being said, Earth Star is a great sequel to Earth Girl. I find that, often, a new writer does a great first book and then bombs on the second one. This isn't the case here. The characters are solid and in place, there is continuity between the two books and no one remarkably becomes an expert in something that they weren't before and the heroine doesn't have all the answers. When she comes up solutions to a problem they are well thought out, even if they are unrealistic. It's important to understand that these books, so far, give a brighter view on the future of humanity. That doesn't mean they aren't without their problems - after all, prejudice still exits, but it's very different than what we experience today. If you're tired of dystopian novels that paint the future world as a bleak oppressive place that abuses its teens with adults that are either clueless or corrupt, then you're going to enjoy this fresh take on an unexpected future. It's a recommended read for me and I look forward to reading the last book in the series.
