This story introduces the Honor Harrington series to young adults by telling the story of Stephanie Harrington who had emigrated to Sphinx with her parents at age eleven. She is a bright only-child who has a burning desire to learn more about her new planet. Her mother gives her a mystery to solve: something is stealing celery from fields and green houses.

Stephanie is intrigued and comes up with a plan to catch and photograph the celery thief even though she has no idea why anyone would bother to steal a plant she only eats if her parents insist. Imagine her surprise when she discovers a small creature with a net full of celery. The net makes Stephanie believe that she has discovered a new sentient species - only the twelfth such species discovered since humans left Old Earth millennia ago.

She's young but even she knows that another sentient species on the world could cause all sorts of problems. Luckily, she has the support of her parents and some others to help her decide what to do about her new furry companion.

This story is also told from the viewpoint of Climbs Quickly - the celery thief - and we see his puzzlement about these beings who are mind blind but clearly can communicate among themselves. He is even more interested in those humans when he forms an emotional bond with Stephanie that lets him communicate with her a little bit. He can sense her emotions but not her thoughts and he isn't sure what she can sense from him.

The pair have adventures together including an encounter with the elephant-sized hexapuma who is a very dangerous predator and with poachers who are determined to capture some treecats both as exotic pets and to experiment on if it proves true that they are telepathic.

I enjoyed this story very much and especially enjoyed Khristine Hvam's narration. She is really good at creating distinct voices for the many characters. ( )

This is Young Adult Sci Fi set on a frontier planet in the far future with a girl-meets-treecat first contact theme.

The split view from human to alien and back was well handled, the action scenes are dramatic and pack an emotional punch and the whole thing is carried along by the excellent performance from Khristine Hyam.

The book kept my attention and some scenes were very powerful but I don't think it fully delivered as a novel. I felt as though I'd had the first three or four episodes of the first season of a promising show and then the thing had been taken off air.

Still, I enjoyed the read and I've bought book two to see where David Weber takes his ideas and his characters ( )

What a disappointment. This book was absolute "not like the other girls" misogynist nonsense. Such a cringe-inducing case of an adult man writing a teenage girl character in a way that shows how thoroughly ignorant he is of teenage girls' experiences. ( )

Oops! Too engrossed to remember I was reading this for a book club. I should have been discussing frequently here on the dashboard. I should be writing a good review.

Instead, I wolfed through this one, then book two and then immediately book three.

I did want more in the Honor-verse. I hesitated to start this before was a bookclub because I wasn't confident author could write for YA.

I was wrong; he did very well with YA. Excellent book, but possibly a bit lacking in some ... not sure "tension" is the correct word. Everything wasn't breezy and light; a few very possibly serious things just seemed a bit easily resolved with the M.C. often just that much smarter than others. Most places that worked well; just enough off that it's not quite a five star read for me.

Boy did I ever want to read this early backstory of the treecat world!ps! Too engrossed to ( )

Cute YA fic. Will be interested to read his adult novels. ( )

"Awful? It could have stunk on ice!

Fortunately, David Weber is a good storyteller, and his teen heroine Stephanie Harrington is every bit as fun as her remote descendant Honor. I don’t know if teenagers will respond to marketing and buy this book like they’re supposed to, but Weber’s many adult fans will certainly enjoy the story."
