Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Had the anime and enjoyed it. When I saw the book I bought it and enjoyed it too. (More technical expressions used, and explained in it) But it's in two parts. I really was waiting for part 2.

It's about an underfunded Japanese space program in the Solomons, and a small young high school girl who's an excellent candidate for their spaceship.

She finds that she has a sister, from their father, who ran out on his wedding night. The tribe he heads has been causing the rockets to explode, by cursing them, to enjoy the fireworks. With the sister's help - she's the father's favorite - they allow the first "manned" flight to succeed.

There's just enough about astronaut training to make it interesting without boring the reader. And some accidents, in space, that make it adventurous.

Format: Paperback
I almost missed this one came out, and was lucky to find it on the shelf of my local Books A Million the same day I found out it was available. I read it that day. That should say a lot, I read the first book in the same day too. These books aren't meant to be deep, but they certainly are fun, and have more honest science and thought provoking ideas then they often get credit for. However, if 'Hard" Sci Fi is what you crave, check out the author's award winning "Usurper of the Sun".
