    I Really Enjoyed This Book- Check it out!

    Sarah’s Spaceship Adventure is a wonderful book to read. I really enjoyed traveling through space with Sarah and Pall as they got to know each other. Sarah is a 19 year old girl, who prior to meeting Pall, probably (at least this is how I see her) was fairly shallow and just went with the flow. As Sarah and Pall interact, however, Sarah grows into the type of feisty character that I can never get enough of. Pall, while younger than Sarah, has the maturity of someone who is much older than he really is, and it was also fun to watch as Sarah taught him to losen up some. Add in the vocabulary of the hoop and space, which is never explained but written in a way that the reader has no problem keeping up, and Sarah’s Spaceship Adventure is a delightful read for anyone who enjoys young adult fiction with a bit of feistiness. And, even if the characters didn’t totally rock, I would totally read this book just to see what names Sarah comes up with for the ship, and to find out if the ship ever gets named… but if you want to know that you will have to read this awesome book for yourself.

    What I really liked-
    The story itself was very enjoyable. Stan Morris does a wonderful job immersing you in this full universe that, as far as I know, is 99% made up in his head. He references Earth a few times, but it’s this mystic/mythic Earth that may or may-not actually exist. Marl, the planet that Sarah comes from is well-described with it’s two continents, as well as all the astroids visited in “the hoop” throughout the story. One can easily picture the surroundings, and the people that are encountered in this book. Another thing I loved about this book was the way that Stan Morris barely used any of our clichés. I say our cliches, because it is obvious that there are clichés used, they are just all clichés from this universe that he has created. Finally, I really, really enjoyed hearing Sarah’s suggestions as to what to name the spaceship. When she boards Pall Swiftcar’s spaceship, she asks him what he calls the ship, to which he says he and his shipmates refer to it as ship number three. So Sarah spends the book coming up with names for the ship, like “Zooming Zipper”, “Fat Angel”, and “Slow Boat” among many others, all of which Pall immediately rejects. I found this little recurring antic highly entertaining.
