5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun adventure for all ages, August 27, 2016

This review is from: Into the Out (Kindle Edition)
This is a fun, smoothly written novel of unexpected space adventure by a group of 10 high school juniors, half male and half female, as told by the newbie, Tamara Ruben, in the format of a diary. Despite the diary format, the story reads easily and with lots of action and dialogue, so I was at ease reading it. This novel reminds of the early Heinlein juveniles and novels by Andre Norton, written for young adults. This is a perfect YA novel for readers who enjoy science fiction, or are just getting to know the field. This is a fine novel for young women, not just guys. And the sexual references are not graphic, just matter of fact and what any teen would know about today. I liked Tamara's sensible attitude to being kidnapped by a starship with its own agenda. They do meet living aliens later in the novel. Until then, there is a strong detective/figure-it-out story element to the story as these teens figure stuff out since no part of the starship speaks English. I've read SF since a young age and this is the kind of novel that drew me into the genre and keeps me coming back for more! Highly recommended!
