The initial premise is a bit ridiculous, as is the story - how many parents, now or a few hundred years in the future, would strand and abandon their child to save money? That said, how many 5 year old thought processes are advanced enough to survive when stranded.
I had initially thought the author was thinking Mars rather than Earth years, but the timescale didn't alter no matter where the MC traveled.
The 5 year old also thought and acted like someone 2 or 3 times that age...
Research pertaining to just about everything is urgently needed. Traveling from Jupiter to Saturn via Venus demonstrates a need to view the solar system as something more than 2 dimensional. Attacking space craft by viewing them through a windshield, and shooting satellites and tracers at them is simply sad - no wind in space and tracers help visualize shot placement. Space battles must take place at nearly knife fighting range!
I've mentioned merely a few problems that come to mind - the book is full of many similar - a comedy of errors.
Obviously several reviewers liked what they read. Myself, I enjoy well researched and presented material. This book is neither.
Definitely not a hard sci-fi story, The Alliance is a well-written adventure that shares some significant similarities with Firefly, and should be enjoyable to fans of the genre.
I suppose this is supposed to be written for young adults, as it certainly didn't work for this senior. Some action, but the main characters were hard to identify with and had limited appeal.
