Fantasy Faction lists the publishers’ choices for 2012

I’m thrilled that when Fantasy Faction asked Harper Voyager for their top books to look out for in 2012, ‘Earth Girl’ was on the list. It’s an honour to be included with Raymond E. Feist, Robin Hobb, Richard Kadrey, Mark Lawrence, and Lauren DeStefano.

This is what Harper Voyager had to say about ‘Earth Girl’.

‘Earth Girl’ by Janet Edwards – June 2012

2788. Only the handicapped live on Earth. While everyone else portals between worlds, 18-year-old Jarra is among the one in a thousand people born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Sent to Earth at birth to save her life, she has been 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. But can she prove to the norms that she’s more than just an Earth Girl?

This is YA science fiction with a smart, feisty heroine, incredible world-building and plenty of wit. Earth Girl is set in a distant future where humanity has learned how to portal off-world and explore other parts of the universe… except for those unfortunate few whose immune system can’t handle living anywhere else but Earth. Jarra is one of those few, but she’s determined to prove that just because she’s confined to the planet, doesn’t mean she can’t reach for the stars.

    Ooh, I loved Lauren DeStefano’s WITHER! So looking forward to FEVER next year…and EARTH GIRL, of course 😉


  2. FEVER has another gorgeous cover like the one for WITHER. I’m really looking forward to seeing the cover for EARTH GIRL, which is going to be in a very different style from those two of course.
