Think Swiss Family Robinson. Basically Lost In Space in the Boundary universe. Felt like a juvenile but also too advanced for many -- far more complex than Heinlein (or Jupiter) ones. Yes, the times have advanced but those could stretch down to 10-year olds. This doesn't feel like it could go that far down.
That said, a pleasant story. Good coming-of-age elements, problem solving, and observation.
I could not shake the suspicion that the book was a put on, the whole thing an exercise in high camp. It never went all the way - maybe the authors were just messing with their readers. It might be most interesting to young teen girls, although I'm not so that could be inaccurate. Overall, if you liked the first three books of the Boundary series, you will find this is not the fourth.
