Eddie, Rosa, Trevor, and Brad (among others) are vying for a coveted space on NASA’s Interworlds Agency team. After a battery of tests measuring not only their mental and physical aptitude, the ranks have been thinned. Those who are ultimately selected will undergo a rigorous training program that will teach them how to pilot a spacecraft, survive outside of Earth’s atmosphere, and be diplomats in first contacts with other life forms. The trainees get more than they bargained for when – early on in their training – gravitational fluctuations alert scientists to the possibility of an actual alien encounter. This is a funny, smart, and fast-paced sci-fi story with clever characters and equally clever banter. Fun, quick read.
