FINALIST! 2015 Canopus Award for Excellence in Interstellar Writing
"Brenda Cooper gives [the multigenerational starship] scenario a thorough, intelligent shaking and reworking, hewing to lots of the glorious old props while infusing a new strain of social justice and semi-YA, Hunger Games vitality into the milieu. …Employing nicely compact chapters and an engaging prose style, never letting the action flag while also illuminating a true trajectory of personal growth for Ruby, Cooper charts the first third of the career of The Creative Fire's songstress savior in a very entertaining and compelling fashion that leaves us eager for further installments."
"Cooper puts a science fiction spin on the life of Eva Perón in this fast-paced, teen-friendly series starter...."
"[A] wonderful work of social science fiction."
-Kirkus Reviews blog, "Best SF/F Reads of November" roundup
"Tackles a timeless theme in an interesting context."
