All is well on the spaceship Plexus. Searching for a habitable planet, the few thousand residents are well taken care of by their ship. The original passengers were carefully chosen as to make for a peaceful journey and that care shows in the next generation. Every step of their day to day lives are planned and peaceful. However once they go thru a radiation field, all bets are off. Life just became a lot more interesting and not all in a good way.
I have to admit that I found this book rather slow going as far as a read. This rather surprised me as I can usually whip through young adult books. I think part of the problem is that I am really touchy about reading in first person. It has to be with a deft touch and well I found it lacking in this story. I do think that kids interested in science fiction might very well enjoy this book but it wasn't really my cup of tea.
I rate it a 3.
