Summary :

In 2198, one hundred and fifty years after the desperate wars that destroyed an over-populated Earth, Man lives precariously on a hundred hastily-established colony worlds and in the seven giant Ships that once ferried men to the stars.

Mia Havero's Ship is a small, closed society. It tests its children by casting them out to live or die in a month Trial in the hostile wilds of a colony world. Mia Havero's Trial is fast approaching and in the meantime she must learn not only the skills that will keep her alive but the deeper courage to face herself and the world.
