This one had a great sci-fi plot that makes me interested in reading more by this author. The characters are well-described and it's easy to relate to them, especially when it comes to the pettiness of teenagers. This one leaves you at a bit of a cliff-hanger, so I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
