The Wanderers have just moved on from Union Station, and the ambassador is ready to take her first vacation in 15 years. Unfortunately, the rules on paid vacation for EarthCent employees have changed for the worse, retroactively. Libby suggests spending some time exploring the station as an alternative, and Kelly cautiously goes along with it. Back at the embassy, while the cat's away, the mice will play.
Another win for E.M. Foner
I'll be honest, I'm running out of things to say about these books, dang it. I am in awe, E.M. Foner has nailed it with this series. He keeps the books short so they don't drag or get stale. Speaking of stale, every book is so different from the previous ones that they are always new and exciting. This one is no different.
What we have this time around is two stories: one where Kelly is finally taking a vacation with her family and the other has some of our other heroes investigating this new scheme of some unknown group wanting humans to go to a democracy (gasp). It's been another couple years since the last book, so everyone is getting a little more (im)mature and growing.
Once more, I recommend this series to everyone. The first book is great but the most different, get past it and you will fall down the rabbit hole I have.
