It's the future and humans are the least respected folks in the galaxy. Which means that life sucks pretty hard for Cassandra, the only human in the space academy. However, when war breaks out, and Cassandra and her alien friends are plunged into the middle of it, Cassandra finds out who she really is.

Well-written, with a great, beautifully quirky art style (the word balloons are especially fun) and well-drawn, interesting characters. It's very... human. Down to earth. By turns funny and tender and sad and exciting. A coming of age story about a girl and a motley group of friends trying to make their way in a war that's way over their heads.

If you like indie comics but you're turned off by ugly art and autobiographical angst, if you like heroines, if you like some intelligence and sensitivity and humor with your skiffy, or if you're just in the mood for fun, smart space-opera, read this. Highly recommended. ( )

Teri Sue Wood’s detailed pen-and-ink style does a wonderful job with alien faces, which beautifully supports her themes.
