Publisher's Summary

Ship hurtles through space. Deep within its core it carries the seed of humankind. Launched by the people of a dying Earth over a century ago, its mission is to find a habitable world for the children - 15-year-old Zoheret and her shipmates - whom it has created from its genetic banks.

To Zoheret and her shipmates, Ship has been mother, father, and loving teacher, preparing them for their biggest challenge: to survive on their own, on an uninhabited planet, without Ship’s protection. Now that day is almost upon them, but are they ready? Ship devises a test, and suddenly instincts that have been latent for over a hundred years take over. Zoheret watches as friends become strangers - and enemies. Can Zoheret and her companions overcome the biggest obstacle to the survival of the human race - themselves?

    Story
    "Sort of Like the Hunger Games"

    Parts of this book reminded me of the Hunger Games, like when they have a contest to see which team can make it through the Hollow which is a wilderness earth like part of the ship they are on.
    I liked the part best when they go out and live in the Hollow on there own in preparation for them to live on the planet they are headed for.
    What I didn't like it that they could have sex without consequences, although their aren't any sex scenes.

    All in all it was a good book and I felt the Narrator was a perfect pick for the main charter's voice.
