Yes, I cried a little in the book! That's what I do people! Don't judge me! Lol, it was a good cry though =)
I loved the first book and I loved this one too. Holy crow!
This book starts off when Pepper and Lovey leave the Wayfarer together. Lovey is in an AI body and is not real happy because that's a lot to get used to when your used to being an AI of a ship and not in a teeny tiny person body!
This book goes back and forth from when Pepper was a little girl to tell her story and the present with Pepper, Lovey, Blue and Tak. Now Pepper told Lovey to pick a name for herself and Lovey came up with Sidra so I'm going to use that from now on. Pepper's name when she was young was Jane #23.
I'm not going to talk a lot about Jane/Pepper's childhood because I don't want to give that away. It's sad and good and something you just have to read for yourself. I enjoyed those parts the most in the book until things changed at the end and a great big wonderful thing happened.
Jane/Pepper was raised by an AI from age 10 to 19 and that's all I'm going to say. Reasons behind it are horrible and stuff.
Pepper gets Sidra back to her home where she lives with Blue. Pepper has a shop where she fixes stuff and what not, I mean she is an engineer/tech - a little bit of everything! Blue decides to spend his time at home with his painting while Sidra works with Pepper.
Sidra is still not having a great time being in a body. She just wants to be what she was before. And let me just say that this story has such a happy ending that it made me feel all fuzzy inside and I needed that right now =)
