    1. Oh, Earth Star. What to do with you?First, let me say this: I loved Earth Girl. It was an astounding book despite a few flaws here and there and I enjoyed it immensely. World-building was pretty good, the romance was boring but it was pretty fulfilling, main character was awesome but perhaps just a bit too awesome, but hey! In the end, I was satisfied, and that's what mattered right?Earth Girl pretty much set up and introduced to us the foundation of the series, so for a sequel, of course I w [...]


    2. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/201Jarra has carried out a successful rescue mission, saved lives at the risk of losing her own, and received the Earth Star and the highest honor of the Artemis medal. But still our protagonist finds herself defined by her disability. I’d been eagerly waiting to read this book ever since I read Earth Girl. Earth Star is the sequel, picking up right where the first book left off. Things have pretty much returned to normal after the events of the [...]


    3. Вот и вторая часть перечитана. Моя любимая в серии. Взросление старых героев и знакомство с новыми - лучшим лжецом в армии Драго, умопомрачительно спокойным Левеком, серьезной и при этом насмешливой Марлиз и многими-многими другими. Обострение неприязни к инвалидам, поиски [...]


    4. Review also found on Looking for the PanaceaI do have to start by saying that this series is not for everyone. It's a tad on the heavy side of science fiction (well, young adult sci-fi anyway, it's not really that heavily focused on sci-fi), and there's a particular style to the writing which may not suit everyone. BUT basically what I'd like is for everyone to give the book a try. Because I do think it's one of those books you're either going to hate or absolutely love, and how are you going to [...]


    5. There is definitely a strong theme of overcoming prejudice that runs through Earth Star more so than its predecessor Earth Girl. At almost every turn Jarra was not just battling her own insecurities but was faced with a universe full of people that for the most part probably view her and those living on Earth as apes.I have allergies so I must not be humanA ridiculous statement yes, but no more ridiculous than the reality of prejudice itself. When you really stop to think about the reasons behin [...]


    6. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Earth Star ever since I finished Earth Girl, and I enjoyed this second book of the series just as much as the first. I love the setting, which is several hundred years in the future when most of humanity is living in off-planet colonies, and I love all the details about the different cultures of those colonies and their thoroughly thought out histories. Like the first, this second book is a few notches down from perfect and that keeps me from recommend [...]


    7. There's something about the way Janet Edwards writes that I find incredibly fun and easy to read. I get pulled in, I care about her characters, I tear through the book as quickly as possible, because I need it all NOW. They aren't without issues, but my enjoyment outranks them for the most part. The Recaps, won't anybody think of the poor Recaps?:I understand WHY it happened, and I understand that it means that someone CAN accidentally pick the books up out of order and still know what's going o [...]


    8. 4.5 starsI could have shelved this Space Opera, since space travel exists and this is about the first sign of intelligent extra-terrestrial alien life (aliens are technically anyone who don't have citizenship in the country in which you live, even though in scifi it means something else :) ).I have to say that this isn't just a fun series, lots of adventure, a girl who is "Handicapped" because she will die of anaphylaxis within 2 minutes of portalling to another planet. All other handicaps are r [...]


    9. Note: Review contains spoilers about Earth Girl.I wasn't too sure about wanting to read the second book in the "Earth Girl" series. I'd loved Earth Girl (see my review), and I've had quite a few series in the past where I'd loved the first books but not the follow-ups. Then came the pink cover and the aliens in the description, and I was even more sceptical. What I loved about Earth Girl was the history, the different cultures, Jarra's military "experiment". I was sure that this would be lost in [...]


    10. Another amazing book by Janet Edwards, and an amazing weekend read! My copy arrived just in time on Friday and I've learned my lesson to be picky when I start certain booksI loved the first book in this trilogy, which is Earth Girl. And I wanted to read more about this utopian world. However, I wasn't expecting a lot from n° 2 in the series. After Earth Girl, I just couldn't imagine how she was going to make another incredible story, but Janet delivered! I'm so glad that I ordered n° 3 this we [...]


    11. I loved the characters and I enjoyed the writing style, but the plot felt a bit like a series of events all stuck together rather than a well planned story arc. I will still definitely be reading the next book and hopefully soon.


    12. Earth Star is the sequel to Earth Girl and it starts right where Earth Girl left us: Jarra has received the Earth Star & the Artemis medals from the military, everyone knows she's a Handicapped (or an "ape" to use the pejorative term) and she has to face her classmates after lying to them. She's got Fian supporting her even without the approval of his family and she's got her love for History and archeology.Once they're trying to get back to the routine of classes after moving to a different [...]


    13. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. It was so bad it was laughable. Literally, I kept reading to see how much more ridiculous it could get. An alien sphere appears above earth. Must get Jarra to the rescue! Let’s make her a captain in the military despite having no military training! But she’s watched vids on the military so she gets it. Only Jarra remembers that there is conveniently a giant underground cavern where humanity can hide to safely wait out the danger. Only Jarra’s presence will expose xenophobia [...]


    14. Earth Star by Janet Edwards in the second book in the Earth Girl series and continues Jarra’s adventures in the far future where humans have invented interstellar portals, but one in a thousand babies are born unable to survive on any planet other than Earth. Earth Star picks up shortly after Earth Girl and makes it clear that humankind has much bigger issues than anyone suspected ;-). The awesome messages about acceptance and the horrible pain that discrimination causes continue in Earth Star [...]


    15. Earth Star begins straight after the events of Earth Girl with Jarra being awarded the Artemis, the highest military honour, for her self-sacrificing help during a military rescue. Jarra is an 'ape', 'handicapped' because she cannot portal to other planets in the universe like the rest of the 'norms'. She is confined to Earth and many 'norms' are prejudiced against 'apes', believing them to be stupid and inferior. Jarra proved in Earth Girl that the handicapped are just as capable as norms but e [...]


    16. I enjoyed Earth Girl a great deal - enough to pre-order Earth Star, even though I was a little worried: would the second book stand up? Would it be as good? It did, and it was. I'm sort of hovering between four and five stars here, really - it's only a few minor things that don't quite allow me to give it the full five (which I'm trying hard not to hand out happily to every single book I've enjoyed).Anyway. The story in Earth Star picks up very soon from where Earth Girl ended, and builds direct [...]


    17. The students of University Asgard’s Pre-History Foundation course are returning to Earth after a short break. Except for Jarra, who cannot leave due to her faulty immune system, and her twoing partner, Fian. They are moving from New York to the Eden dig site in Africa to continue their studies at Earth’s last new city. Surrounded by reclaimed rainforest, this site poses a whole new set of risks but Jarra and Fian are called away suddenly by the military; the Alien Contact programme has been [...]


    18. I read Earth Girl several years ago when it first came out in the U.K. and loved it. I mean, how could I not, with one of the main characters having the same last name as me. Even though I loved it, for whatever reason I never continued with the series. Recently, I was going through my unfinished series shelf on , and saw that the rest of the series was still on there, so I decided to pick up the second book, Earth Star. I'm so glad I did. It was absolute perfection.Even though it had been a whi [...]


    19. 4.5**Received in exchange for an honest review**Big thank you to Harper Voyager*An absolutely brilliant to sequel to what was an amazing first book! This book was even more captivating than Earth Girl, with the characters given even more depth and an introduction to some truly wonderful characters. Everything was so much more intense and there was so much more action in it. I really enjoyed it. It isn't a series that I would usually read, but having read so many raving reviews about the series, [...]


    20. My main issue with Janet Edwards is she is just too long-winded. There's a lot of good to her books that sort of gets lost in the muddling, boring and tedious info dumps.Despite that, I like her confident writing style. She inserts her world's terminology easily and I like some of her made-up colloquialisms. She's so comfortable with her characters and her world.There's Keon who I especially liked because he's so observant but just gives off this lazy air.“We’re refugees from a party that st [...]


    21. I found this book not as good as the first one. Jarra's relationship with her boyfriend was rather boring: I mean they get engaged with rings and all. But the plot is full of action and I really wanted to know what happend with the aliens. I found it rather unrealistic that Jarra is now in the military with a hight rank and a lot of responsibility. I don't have the impression that Jarra really grows up. She hasn't changed at all. The story is well paced, but I rather wanted to know more about he [...]


    22. I love good YA science fiction and this series (set in the 28th century) is a fine example, not least because of Jarra, its 18-year-old archaeologist heroine. Jarra might not be able to explore space due to her 'Handicap' but instead she delves into the mysteries left behind on Earth including, in Earth Star, its alien visitors. Every bit as good as its predecessor Earth Girl, this is a wonderful novel for teens and the young at heart.


    23. I'm not sure this book was entirely necessary. The plot was quite repetitive, and most of the detail is excruciating. But, at the same time, it's different and thoughtful and I can't entirely dismiss Earth Star. I'm hoping that Earth Flight will clarify if there was important setup here that I just wasn't seeing. I still like Jarra even if she is a know it all, and I love how she and Fian are so into each other. Also, the lingo has grown on me.


    24. once again i loved this book. This world makes me want to be a futuristic archeologist. Its one series that seems to be getting better with every book. The characters just keep evolving into better more dynamic individuals. I never wanted to put this book down but by the end i was sorry it was finished so i cant wait for the third & final installment.


    25. I was worried that this one wouldn't be as awesome as the first one. I think it was. I liked it, I can't wait for the third one to come out. i dont really have much to say in the way of reviews about this book, other than it drew me in, and hooked me, just like the first one didi didn't want to put it down at all, and going to work really annoyed me. lol


    26. "Oh Jarra, you're so special and no-one else can help us but you!" Everyone chorused."No!" Jarra said with an evil smile. "It's just that I have such great ancestors. I am just a humble smelly ape.""Oh no you're not!" said the universe repeatedly set up to be inherently xenophobic and racist, but not to Jarra.



    27. Were this series a person I'd have its babies. will write more (and hopefully more eloquently) as soon as I'm done fangirling >_<


    28. Again on the second read, I was a little disappointed. But I knew what I was in for and it was still a decent book. Recommend for anyone who liked Earth Girl.
