Reading this I was taken back to my teen years when I used to inhale every SF book that I could get my hands on! To be very frank, I found it rather boring. I thought that it covered ground that had been covered many times over the years. There was a good base story but it got neglected through most of the book. It was only when we got to about 90% of the way through that any action took place. I wish that more had been done with the abuse of women theme and also followed Demetrious a bit more. Tesla (Ella) develops in microgravity but not enough. I also didn’t like the inference that all she had worked for was given to her. I think that it will hold up for the YA market, although the children today seem to be much more aware of the scientific aspects of living in space.
