Worlds of imagination by Sara B. Gauldin
When I first downloaded this book I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had read other books by the author, but the word gypsy brought back a memory from the movie Pinocchio. This book is not that sort of book at all.
The story line is centered around a young lady named Caz. She has been raised on a space station by her science intensive father. She has a well-behaved sister and an absent mother who immediately seems to have more than to story than she herself is originally aware of. Caz is tired of the sterile and orderly lifestyle that she has been living on the space station. She is tougher than some of the other members of the crew. Her ability to take care of herself and her mischievous tendencies lead her to a run in with a young man. Even though Caz is not totally at fault, she receives the brunt of the punishment because she injured her attacker. This quiet nod to the tendency to suppress empowered women caught my attention.
Caz is faced with a decision. For her punishment, she can choose solitary confinement and stay near her family, or she can choose to attend a work camp on the nearby planet, Caren’s surface. Much to her family’s distress, she chooses to visit the first planet she has ever set foot on.
Caz is faced with a situation that is completely foreign to her, from the landing to the need for shoes, the experience of gravity and dirt, the planet is a completely foreign concept.
Due to a strange encounter, Caz is able to adapt and flourish. But her struggle in the camp is just beginning!
I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading the other books in the trilogy!
