Paraphrased from a review:
This book cleverly combines several genres: science fiction, cowboy westerns, super heroes, the wild ones on motorcycles, and coming-of-age stories. The sci-fi theme provides a warning about what can go wrong when we abuse our resources (as on Sassatha), and makes us appreciate both the idiosyncrasies (endless offers of coffee) and beauties (stars at night, plentiful water) of planet Earth. In true western style, there’s a show-down with the wild ones and the protagonist, Cricket, uses her super power, but, ….okay, no spoilers allowed.
Another review, Kirkus, described the book as “grade A storytelling”
