The Earth Girl Trilogy from Pyr and Harper Voyager
The EARTH GIRL trilogy is science fiction for both adult and older young adult readers, set in a distant future where humanity portals between hundreds of colony worlds . . . except for the unfortunate few whose immune system can’t handle living anywhere else but Earth. Jarra was sent to Earth at birth to save her life and abandoned by her parents. She can’t travel to other worlds, but she can watch their vids, and she knows all the jokes they make. She’s an “ape,” a “throwback,” but this is one ape girl who won’t give in.
