Even risky will Lindsay survive the dangerous Marauders find the jewels and return them before Jo's planet runs out of reserve power There were parts I liked and parts I didn'tI found the dialogue a bit tacky at times and some of the girls responses to certain situations seemed a bit unlikely like getting to naked to distract some monster aliens However on their own Lindsay and Jo are interesting well formed characters I think a lot of teen girls could easily identify with LindsayJo was my fave character and she made an ideal lesbian love interest although they were an unlikely couple they were sweet together and the unlikelyness of them appealed to meThere's no sex but there are some intimate moments that were surprisingly touching and genuine

Shy Lindsay Fleming has just summoned up all her courage and come out All she's ever wanted is to be accepted for herself but though her best friend Myra is okay with her sexual orientation many of her high school friends are not Her parents don't understand at all leaving Lindsay angry and confused During the Christmas season Lindsay attends a meeting for the newly out but she leaves when that turns into a disaster On This book jumps right into action as Lindsay comes upon Joneprha Jo being attacked by very tall men with red skin and for the most the story remains in a state of tension and high activity I usually like that because it makes me feel like the story is flying by and I am right in the action with the characters For some reason though it did take me a few chapters before I could get immersed in the storyAfter accidentally driving away Jo’s attackers Lindsay gets swept up in Jo’s uest to save her planet They travel through many different worlds and I thought the author was very creative with them It did seem a little bit convenient that almost every world besides Jo’s had breathable air but I thought the descriptions of the lifeforms and their ways of communicating were interestingBecause it’s a YA story sexual situations were kept brief and to a bare minimum The romance between Jo and Lindsay was a slow burn with the two working together and building trust but not really making any moves on each other I was torn about that I wanted to feel a little bit chemistry but I appreciated that while Jo was trying to save her world their wasn’t a lot of gratuitous making out when important things really needed to be done However the girls do begin to see a kindred spirit in the other and romance blossomsI would say I enjoyed this story There are two books and I am interested in reading about the two of them and their adventures after this story It isn’t perfect because there are a few inconsistencies in the story but I’d definitely say that the story line and characters kept me interested until the end I’d definitely recommend the story especially to those that are fans of YA or sci fi810 Pots of Gold 80% Recommended – Compares to 45 Stars
