I am revisiting books read and written during my childhood. Two teenage winners of a writing competition, Welsh Gareth and American Karen, win tickets to visit the moon. A non-corporeal girl called Bethkahn, from an alien planet, needs a part of her sentient ship fixed by a flesh and blood human in order to return home after a 10,000 year sleep. What ensues is a simple exploration of relationships and the meaning of existence as we know it and as it could be. How Bethkahn came to be there is a fascinating premise that could have been explored in more detail. However, this is a relatively short and simple story, though somehow compelling and elegantly, though not overly lyrically, written. Some of the technology and details about life on the Moon show the book's age, but still an enjoyable read. ( )

This book is about an alien life form that gets trapped on the earth's moon when her crew leaves her to fix their ship. They went down to earth and landed on Atlantis, right before it was destroyed. She then spends thousands of years waiting for someone to come save her from her loneliness. Eventually, we land on the moon... ( )
