Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-A thousand light-years from Earth, a small Christian colony's struggle to survive on a relatively hospitable but devastated planet is complicated by the discovery of intelligent, crablike sea creatures. Rejoice Holly, 12, is the first to meet them; as she watches humans and "hexacrabs" grope past potentially dangerous misunderstandings toward friendship, her burning ambition to study astronomy puts her in conflict with her parents and community leaders, who are trying to create an agrarian, nontechnological society. Foreman integrates both science and religion into the story in consistent, believable ways. Before the colony's arrival, the planet's surface and atmosphere had been radically changed by a giant meteor strike, and when another meteor is discovered on a collision course, Rejoice's avocation is validated; with thought and prayer she comes up with a feasible way to avert the catastrophe. Despite some simplification, the cast is believable; whether two-or six-legged. Most individuals have a past, personality, conscience, and priorities. Spiritual issues and concerns are central to, but rest lightly on, this predictable, yet well-knit story.

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-7. Twelve-year-old Rejoice Holly wants to become an astronomer, but the life her parents have chosen at a neo-Puritan farming colony on a planet called New Earth doesn't appear to offer that option. When Rejoice discovers intelligent natives (ocean-dwelling hexacrabs) and a dangerous asteroid threatens the colony, her options expand. The hexacrabs are not always made interesting and individual characters. More appealing are Rejoice and her older brother, who struggle to find their identities in a world determined by their parents' religious choices. Foreman allows the children a full range of angry responses and portrays adult characters as distinctive in personality though similar in religious belief. She's created a world in which a unifying faith coexists with complexity. Mary Harris Veeder
