This was a great example of Fantasy/Youth fiction. I enjoyed reading it, and that's saying a lot since, this is not a genre I would personally choose to read. I would love to know the rest of the story. A very original and interesting excerpt.

ABNA 2010    I'm delighted to see that "Electra Lucas: Crisis in Space" has made the quarter final round in the 2010 ABNA contest.     Some of the best adventure stories are about pioneers leaving all that's known and embarking on a new life.
