Book Synopsis Earth Girl by : Janet Edwards

A sensational YA science fiction debut from an exciting new British author! Just because she's confined to the planet, doesn't mean she can't reach for the stars. 2788. Only the handicapped live on Earth. Eighteen-year-old Jarra is among the one in a thousand people born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Sent to Earth at birth to save her life, she has been abandoned by her parents. She can't travel to other worlds, but she can watch their vids, and she knows all the jokes they make. She's an "ape," a "throwback," but this is one ape girl who won't give in. Jarra makes up a fake military background for herself and joins a class of norms who are on Earth for a year of practical history studies excavating the dangerous ruins of the old cities. She wants to see their faces when they find out they've been fooled into thinking an ape girl was a norm. She isn't expecting to make friends with the enemy, to risk her life to save norms, or to fall in love.

Book Synopsis Earth Girl: Die Prüfung by : Janet Edwards

Sie kommt von der Erde. Ihr Schicksal steht in den Sternen. Jarra ist ein «Earth Girl». Während sich der Rest der Menschheit aufmacht, fremde Galaxien zu entdecken, ist Jarra zu einem Leben auf dem alten Heimatplaneten verdammt: Aufgrund eines Gendefekts kann sie nicht teleportieren. Sie gehört zu den Ausgestoßenen, den Wertlosen. Aber Jarra hat einen Traum: Sie will normal sein, will wie alle anderen studieren. Ihre Leidenschaft ist die Frühgeschichte – der faszinierende Zeitraum vor Erfindung der Portaltechnik. Damals lebten die Menschen in riesigen Städten wie New York, die heute nur noch Ruinen sind. Um ihren Traum wahr werden zu lassen, muss Jarra ihre Identität verleugnen. Sie ist bereit, diesen Preis zu zahlen. Doch als ein schreckliches Unglück droht und nur Jarra es aufhalten kann, beginnt sie sich zu fragen, ob es wirklich so erstrebenswert ist, normal zu sein ...

Book Synopsis Sol 2781 by : Janet Edwards

Sol 2781 is the third of three full-length novels set immediately after the novelette length short story Hera 2781. Major Drago Tell Dramis is celebrating the fact that the saboteur has been caught, and the Earth solar arrays will be safe now. The arrest of a member of the main board of Hospital Earth has consequences though. As Drago hits orbital levels of fury, and declares his own personal war against Hospital Earth, he’s hit by even more unexpected problems. There’s a joke that says one birth member of the Tell clan attracts trouble, two birth members of the Tell clan invite minor disasters, while three is the critical mass that triggers cataclysmic events. As the danger mounts, the question is whether Drago and his two cousins, Jaxon and Gemelle, can prove an alternative theory. Are three members of the Tell clan really the critical mass that resolves cataclysmic events? This extra-long novel concludes the Drago Tell Dramis 2781 sequence of Hera 2781, Hestia 2781, Array 2781, and Sol 2781.
