ALBA, published 2009.
“My first space travel was a sophisticated teen rebellion. Instead of standing with my thumb along truck-laden roads I stepped out in the universe. I lied about my age, faked my past and pretended to be someone else.”

When an expedition is sent out to explore a new planet, she’s an unbacked participant among the other scientists. But not everyone on the team has good intentions.
