Summary of the Book:

What is alien and what is normal? To Inan, she’s just a girl on her homeworld, yet she dreams of travelling to the stars and experiencing all the adventures they promise. Dream is all she can do, as her people’s customs forbid girls to face dangers – especially amongst the stars. Instead of adventures, they are expected to serve their families as leaders and never take personal risks. But that is about to change as Inan’s life takes a sudden turn.

A series of events lead to her being lost in space, shipwrecked and kidnapped by soldiers-turned-pirates, a remnant from the war fought many, many years ago. With only an alien being to keep her company, she is forced to use her wits to stay alive. As she struggles, she befriends Alan, a human boy who is little more than a captive himself. Yet things go from bad to worse after a failed escape attempt when Inan comes into contact with an unknown ancient artefact which ultimately will decide the fate of the whole galaxy.

Catapulting the reader into an exciting space-opera universe, In Between the Stars is an original take on human-alien interactions, with quirky characters, high humour and endless amounts of drama. Readers aged 12 years and above will delight in the rich world that has been created, inspired by the likes of the great Science Fiction writers.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I was not really sure about this book. IT was a little strange and it made me thing that time was all mixed up. I have to say that Hijinks was my favorite character. A big purple furball. The adventure to do what is asked of someone. I just wanted more, but could be is that I trying to read more in this genre and just not found my niche in it yet.

My Rating of the Book: 3 1/2 Stars
