Elara Adele Vaughn has everything it takes to become a top planetary designer: skills, talent, and a one-way ticket to the Seven Systems School of Terraforming Sciences and Arts. But for all her excitement, life at her new school is a lot tougher–and stranger–than she ever thought possible. Her roommate, Clare, is a mute, intergalactic sponge. A field trip almost ended in the belly of a monster. And no one at her new school knows what it’s like to grow up on a planet so far away it’s called “Nowhere.” But if the galaxy’s greatest terraformers made it through their first year, then so can Elara.

I loved the book. As I was reading it, I was laughing the whole time. I had no idea that terraforming could make me laugh so hard!
