Summary: When Amy’s dad loses his job, their family must move from the mining colony in deep space to Earth. It’s a 30 year journey they complete while in a state of suspended animation. When Amy wakes up she feels out of place.
Likes: I loved the art, I found Amy to be a sympathetic character, and the world of future Earth to be interesting.
Dislikes: There was very little interaction between Amy and the “space boy.”
Overall I’m not sure where this is going which is pretty exciting because I don’t know what to expect. But it also doesn’t feel like we’ve been introduced to an overarching conflict yet. But we’ll see because I do really want to read the next volume.
