This review is from: Earth Girl (Kindle Edition)
Once you start reading this book you might find it difficult to put down.
The story is told from the perspective of Jarra, a girl born around 2760 AD with a genetic handicap that confines her to living on Earth whereas the majority of the human race has long since portalled off to other stars and planets. She is quite angry about her condition but decides to make the best of the situation and enrolls on a pre-history course with an off-world university. The advantage of this course is that it takes place on Earth. She concocts a story to cover up her handicap, goes on an archeological dig in the ruins of New York and falls in love with one of her classmates who is from another world. Things then get complicated, her parents die, she becomes a hero, her cover story is blown but her boyfriend remains faithful.
The narration is well paced and keeps the reader engrossed in the story even though most of story takes place in a plastic dome or on the archeological dig site.
