Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Josh and his autistic cousin Dawn are sent to the planet Solferino, they join a group of kids already working for an interplanetary conglomerate stationed there. Assured by the bosses that no intelligent life exists on Solferino, Josh and Dawn come to suspect otherwise. Especially when Dawn makes contact with one of the creatures, a creature with whom she shares a mysterious ability to communicate.

With the corporation pressuring them, Josh and Dawn are drawn into a battle to save the creatures. And, it turns out, to save themselves.

Synopsis:

When teenager Josh Kerrigan is sent to the planet Solferino, he joins a crew of kids already working for the interplanetary agricultural conglomerate stationed there. Though his bosses maintain that no intelligent nonhuman life exists on Solferino, Josh suspects differently.

When Josh's autistic cousin Dawn makes contact with a mysterious alien creature, he is drawn into a battle to save not only the lives of those he loves, but an ecosystem in which a power of unbelievable proportions resides.
